Iranian FM’s visit to China of great importance in current circumstances: Envoy

Iran’s Ambassador to China Mohammad Keshavarzzadeh said an upcoming visit by Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian to Beijing is of great importance in the current circumstances.

The Iranian diplomat said that various issues will be discussed during Amir-Abdollahian’s trip to China, according to IRNA.

According to China’s Foreign Ministry, the Iranian top diplomat is scheduled to visit China on Friday.

“China and Iran resolutely support each other on the core issues,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told a press conference on Tuesday, according to Reuters.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday that Amir-Abdollahian will discuss a 25-year cooperation agreement signed by the two countries.

The comprehensive strategic partnership agreement was signed by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and former Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tehran in 2021, Press TV reported.

The Sino-Iranian Comprehensive Strategic Partnership was announced in a joint statement during a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping to Tehran in 2016.

The cooperation roadmap consists of 20 articles, covering Tehran-Beijing ties in “Political, Executive Cooperation, Human and Cultural, Judiciary, Security and Defense, and Regional and International” domains, according to the statement released back then.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry has said the document is a roadmap for trade, economic and transportation cooperation, with a special focus on the private sectors of the two sides.
