Iranian, North Korean diplomats stress expansion of bilateral ties

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian orteza Sarmadi and the outgoing ambassador of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to Iran, Jo In Chol, stressed the need to promote bilateral relations in all spheres, particularly in the area of economy.
During a farewell meeting in Tehran on Sunday evening, Sarmadi paid tribute to the efforts made by the North Korean ambassador and said that Tehran-Pyongyang ties are important and it is necessary to strengthen the ties in all fields, particularly in the area of trade.

“Relations between the two countries have a solid base and the reciprocal visits by various delegations are indicative of the importance of bilateral ties,” he added.

Jo In Chol, for his part, briefed Sarmadi on some of the measures he took during his tenure in Tehran and said that recently, considerable efforts have been made to boost economic cooperation between the two countries.

He also praised the “firm and clear” stances adopted by the Islamic Republic on the important international issues.

Back in September, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, in a meeting with his North Korean counterpart, Ri Su-yong, in Tehran, had emphasized that the Iranian private investors can contribute to the enhancement of Iran-North Korea relations.

“By getting involved in the arena of economic cooperation, the Iranian private sectors can take up a unique role in the expansion and deepening of trade and economic ties between the two countries and guarantee the promotion of ties,” Zarif said in the meeting.
