Iran-China relations very important & strategic: Envoy
The Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran in China described the relations between Tehran and Beijing as very important and strategic.
Keshavarz Zadeh said despite the US inhumane sanctions against Iran, relations between Tehran and Beijing have been developing at political, economic and other levels and numerous delegations are being exchanged to strengthen and develop relations between the two countries.
He pointed out that Iran-China relations have been enhanced to the level of strategic partnership and proposing Iran's 25-year cooperation plan to China, which outlines the two countries' roadmap in all fields, is a sign of Tehran-Bejing willingness to deepen and strengthen bilateral ties.
He said that given some recent agreements between the two countries, China is a good market for the export of seafood and livestock products, saying: "non-oil exports are very important to Iran in the current situation."
