Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has wrapped up his five-day visit to India during which he met several top Indian officials.
The focus of Larijani’s discussions has been the expansion of economic and parliamentary cooperation between the two countries.
In his meetings with Indian officials, Larijani described India as one of the leading players in the region and said that Iran and India are determined to promote closer inter-parliamentary cooperation and bilateral ties in the years to come.
Larijani called for the expansion of relations between Tehran and New Delhi. In response, Indian President Pranab Mukherjee called for strong bilateral economic relations between the two countries. He also said that both nations have a responsibility to address the challenges in the region and the world like terrorism, energy security, food security, and climate change.
Commenting over the Iran’s nuclear program, Larijani said the issue would be resolved through negotiations as the world powers have realized that negotiations are the only way to achieve peaceful solution. Indian officials also maintained that Iran’s nuclear issue could be resolved only through dialogue.
Larijani also said that certain countries were seeking to undermine the relations between the two nations. Speaking on the sidelines of Islamic Awakening conference in New Delhi on Tuesday, he called for greater unity among Muslims and noted that division is the main problem of the Muslim world.
Larajani said he had constructive talks with Indian officials and both the nations enjoy very close views on establishing a developed region and partners in maintaining peace and stability in the region.
