Iran and China start detailed talks on 25-year deal: Minister

Government departments from Iran and China have started detailed talks to reach concrete investment and cooperation agreements after a 25-year partnership between the two countries formally went into effect earlier this week, says Iran’s finance minister Ehsan Khandouzi.

“Now each (Iranian) ministry … has started talks related to its field of activity with the Chinese side so that they can reach contracts,” Khandouzi was quoted as saying by the Iranian parliament’s news service ICANA on Sunday.

“It will be after the start of these contracts that the investment and growth we have in mind would effectively take place,” he said.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi signed final documents to announce the start of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership between the two countries on Friday.
