The presidential visit to Iran will take place immediately after the resolution of problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Rashid Hassanpour said, adding that at least 10 cooperation agreements will be signed during the visit.
In an interview with IRNA, Hassanpour highlighted the history of more than 80 years of diplomatic ties between Iran and Serbia and said that Vucic’s planned visit is proof that bilateral relations are on the “friendship” track and are growing.
In a telephone conversation with Vucic in June, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called for the expansion of relations with Serbia in all fields, stressing that the cruel US sanctions should not be allowed to ruin bilateral ties between Tehran and Belgrade, particularly their economic interaction.
Rouhani also hailed Iran and Serbia’s common stances against unilateralism, called for closer interaction in the international organizations, and said, “The two Iranian and Serbian nations have always stood against foreign intervention to protect their independence, and have not allowed the aliens to interfere in their internal affairs.”
