Iran, China to boost economic ties: Rouhani

TEHRAN, Apr. 24 (MNA) – Iran President announced that Iran-China economic ties will develop fully during the current year.

Hassan Rouhani, who was talking to reporters after his arrival in Tehran, emphasized his inclusive talks with Chinese President and declared Iran and China will advance the economic ties fully.

Having returned from the Africa-Asia Conference in Jakarta, he said the current century is named after Asia and the continent is flourishing increasingly.

Noting the presence of leaders of more than a hundred nations in the event, Rouhani stressed “various issues have been discussed, particularly the possible ways of increasing economic cooperation between Asian countries.”

“However, the critical issue of terrorism has cast a shadow over all discussions and the condition of countries like Iraq and Syria was taken into consideration,” added he.

Given his meetings with his counterparts of different countries, Iranian President underlined “discussions with Chinese President were more inclusive on regional issues, Iran’s nuclear negotiations, and Tehran-Beijing economic ties.”
