Chinese ambassador on Xi’s Iran visit

Iran is Chinese President Xi Jinping’s last leg of his three-nation Middle East tour.

Chinese ambassador to Iran Pang Sen says the visit will leave an indelible mark in the history of bilateral high-level exchanges between Beijing and Tehran.

Over the past two years, China and Iran have seen a series of high-level exchanges, and that has strengthened their mutual trust and understanding.

Meanwhile, the two countries’ bilateral economic and trade exchanges and cooperation have been continuously expanding.

In 2014, two-way trade reached 50 billion U.S. dollars.

According to Pang, the two heads of states, during the visit, are expected to exchange views on bilateral relations, as well as major global and regional issues.

He said the two nations are also going to sign a number of agreements and memorandums in a variety of areas, ranging from industrial capacity cooperation, investment, oil and gas to cultural exchanges, information sharing and Customs.

China is the world’s largest developing country while Iran is a regional power, he said, noting that the two nations have neither unfinished problems inherited from the past nor conflicting interests at the moment.

He believes that the friendly cooperation between the two nations will not only conform to the fundamental interests of the two peoples, but is also going to help promote peace, stability and prosperity in the region.
