Larijani Praises Iran's Strong Ties with Azerbaijan

"Azerbaijan is a Muslim, brotherly and neighboring country of Iran. Iran and Azerbaijan have historical ties, based on deep roots. From this point of view, the relations between the two countries in various spheres are at a very high level," Larijani told Trend on the eve of his visit to Azerbaijan on June 30.

"Fortunately, in recent years, diplomatic negotiations have been conducted to develop political, economic, cultural and social ties between the two countries, and the relations continue to develop," he said.

"With regard to the inter-parliamentary relations of the two countries, a friendship group has been set up by the two parliaments, they are in constant contact with each other and hold discussions," Larijani said.

"We meet our Azerbaijani friends in international arena and conduct negotiations with them. Our inter-parliamentary relations are satisfactory, but we can improve these relations and share experiences. The parliaments of both countries can adopt some joint laws that can enable us to create even better conditions for investments. Thus, we can expand the cooperation between the two countries' parliaments in the field of legislation," he stressed.

"Another sphere in which the sides can cooperate is the international inter-parliamentary community," Larijani said.

"Both countries are members of the OIC Inter-Parliamentary Union and also the world Inter-Parliamentary Union, where we can discuss many issues with each other, including the situation of the Muslim countries, international issues, as well as issues of mutual interest."

"The third sphere in which we can cooperate is that the parliaments of both countries support implementation of projects of inter-state importance.

"The potential that exists in the parliaments of both countries can play a supporting role in implementing bilateral economic, political and social projects," he said.

Larijani emphasized that there exist a number of important issues which should be discussed at the political level.

"There are a number of regional issues and issues of mutual interest for both countries, which will be discussed during my visit to Azerbaijan," he said.

"The parliaments of Iran and Azerbaijan have signed several cooperation agreements. During my visit, we can also sign a number of other agreements in spheres of interest to Azerbaijan," Larijani added.
