Highlighting good interaction between Tehran and Canberra, Zarif called on the new envoy to put efforts into resolving the problems of Iranian migrants in Australia and boosting economic and trade cooperation between the two countries.

Biggs, for his part, pledged efforts to settle the Iranians’ problems in his country within the framework of bilateral agreements.

He also hailed Iran as the region’s most stable and safest country, saying he is delighted to take a post in the Islamic Republic.

Earlier in March, Zarif paid a visit to Australia and held meeting with high-ranking officials, including Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Minister of Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop.

Expansion of economic ties, Iran’s illegal immigrants in Australia and their optional repatriation, the exchange of delegations between the states, and the Middle Eastern and global affairs were among the key points discussed between Zarif and Australian authorities.
