Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani on Saturday stressed the need for development of cooperation between Iran and Belarus in the field of human rights and fight on terrorism.
In a meeting with Prosecutor General of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Vladimirovich, he said that Iran-Belarus ties have posted good progress in recent years and they can further improve through mutual cooperation and proper planning.
Iran’s judiciary chief further said that the two sides should get familiar with each other’s judicial systems so that they can promote judicial and legal ties, calling for an exchange of specialized judicial delegations.
He also said that independence is the main feature of Iran’s judiciary.
Human rights and the fight against terrorism can be among the main areas of cooperation between the two countries, he said, noting that Belarus was also under pressure by the West for its independence and was accused of failure to accept human rights principles.
Amoli Larijani said that the Western governments have sought to impose the Western values such as human rights principles on independent nations.
Vladimirovich, for his part, voiced his country’s readiness to promote judicial and legal ties with Iran.
Congratulating Iran on its success in nuclear talks, he hoped that the two countries’ ties will further improve.
The Belarusian official expressed his government’s preparedness for removal of legal and judicial obstacles to boost bilateral economic cooperation.
