MP Calls for More Frequent Exchange of Visits by Iranian, Indian Officials

"We believe that increasing contacts and interactions both between the two countries' normal citizens and parliamentary and state officials can play an effective role in the expansion of cooperation between the two countries in different aspects," Bighash underscored during the meeting in Tehran on Sunday.

Such contacts also "prepare the grounds for taking the existing opportunities and potential and activated capacities in the relations between the two big countries of Iran and India and widening mutual understanding between the two nations," he added.

During the meeting, George stressed the age-old, profound bonds between the two countries, and said his country is eager to further expand its bilateral ties with Tehran, especially in cultural and economic fields.

Iran and India have in recent years striven to develop and improve their bilateral relations in different fields.

In March, Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi in a meeting with India's National Security Advisor (NSA) Shivshankar Menon here in Tehran described India as a country with a special and important position in the region and the world, and underlined the need for more frequent visits and expanded relations between the two countries' officials and politicians.

Salehi noted the abundant capacities and capabilities of both states, and added, "Iran is a country with huge energy resources, while India owns advanced technologies, and this means that the two countries can have very good cooperation in economic, trade, technological and other fields."

"We are ready for any kind of cooperation" with India, the Iranian Foreign Minister reiterated.

The Indian official, for his part, reiterated the need for the betterment and bolstering of the bilateral relations with Tehran, and said, "Either side enjoys abundant capacities and is, meantime, able to create new grounds for cooperation."
