Keshavarz-Zadeh made the remarks at the People to People friendship International Conference in China, IRNA reported.
He said that the joint statement of preservation of Asian cultural heritage, the memorandum of understanding of cinematic exchanges, as well as extensive cooperation with Chinese social and official media, are examples that have contributed greatly to the friendship between Iran and China.
Describing the Iran-China 25-year agreement of cooperation as an important opportunity for the two states to cooperate in various fields, he added that the areas of cooperation between Iran and China in the field of construction, technology, and pharmaceuticals have been facilitated.
Iranian officials say the 25-year cooperation agreement that Tehran and Beijing signed in March has a comprehensive road map, with the economic dimension serving as the document's main axis. This includes cooperation in various fields, as well as Iran's involvement in the initiative and a special focus on the private sector in both countries.
In February, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hailed the close cooperation between Tehran and Beijing as win-win interaction, saying such strategic relations remain unaffected by international developments.
In an article written for The People’s Daily on the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Iran and China, Zarif expressed hope that Iran would play a greater role in China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a global infrastructure development strategy to link Asia, Europe and beyond.
