A senior Iranian lawmaker says China and Russia are the Islamic Republic’s priorities for cooperation, adding that if the western countries follow the rules of the game Tehran likes to work with them as well.
Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, referred to Russia and China as Tehran’s priorities for international cooperation, adding that the Western countries led by the US, who at the recent UN Security Council meeting tried to adopt a resolution against Iran, should not expect the country to continue its friendship unilaterally.
Speaking to IRIB News Agency in a Farsi interview in Russia, he said the policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran after the nuclear deal is to boost ties with European countries, but it is not supposed to be a one-way friendship while they continue their ill-treatments.
Boroujerdi and his accompanying delegation, who have travelled to Russian Federation to participate in an economic conference in the southwestern city of Saratov, arrived at the Vnukovo international airport of Moscow on Sunday and then headed to Saratov after a brief stop.
The delegation’s trip has been made at the invitation of the chairman of Russia’s Duma.
The purpose of this conference is to serve as a venue for exchange of views about the developments of regions and establishing economic relations between participating companies, traders and investors.
Participating delegates will discuss issues like digital economy, improvement of business conditions, market development for agricultural products, growth of technology in industrial complexes, and development of tourism.
