TEHRAN, Apr. 10 (MNA) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said developing all-out cooperation between European Union and Iran will play an important role in resolving the complex regional and international issues.
Speaking during a meeting with Estonian Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand in Tehran on Sunday, President Rouhani hailed the almost one-decade long relations between the two countries, saying “university students and professors exchange programs as well as providing the conditions for joint research can allow Tehran and Tallinn to have better cultural cooperation with one another.”
Rouhani said the Islamic Republic is deeply concerned about the instability in some countries in North Africa and a number of other states in the Middle East, adding “the majority of these countries are gripped with the stabilizing moves by terrorist groups and efforts to restore security to these countries can actually help stability in the region and across the world.”
The Iranian President stressed that if terrorist groups are not seriously confronted with, the scourge of terrorism will spread to other parts of the world, including Europe.
Rouhani further added that one field of cooperation between Iran and the EU is coordination and consultations for maintaining peace and security in the region, expressing hope that the talks would lead to constructive and effective cooperation toward the promotion of peace in Middle East.
The Estonian Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand, for her part, deemed the Islamic Republic one of the major players on the regional and international scenes, saying her country is eager to expand cooperation with Iran in all areas of mutual interest.
Kaljurand then referred to her accompanying delegation comprising representatives of Estonia’s major trade enterprises, saying “a window to new opportunities have opened toward Tehran-Tallinn expansion of ties, and this cooperation will definitely benefit both countries.”
Heading a business and political delegation, Estonian Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand arrived in Iran on Sunday to discuss issues of mutual interests as well as expansion of economic and trade interactions during her meetings with senior Iranian officials.
She also held talks with Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif earlier today, during which the two sides discussed cooperation in different political, economic, parliamentary, cultural and academic fields.
