Larijani in China to boost bilateral relations

February 19, 2019

TEHRAN – Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Monday his trip to China is aimed to boost political, cultural, scientific and economic relations.

Larijani made the remarks before departing Tehran for Beijing, as head of a high ranking delegation, upon the invitation of Li Zhanshu, chairman of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee.

Iran and China, as two countries with ancient civilizations, have always enjoyed close relations, he said.

“There have been economic and parliamentary cooperation between the two countries in recent years,” Larijani said, adding that the two sides held “good talks” about cooperation during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Iran.
