The head of the Iranian state wants to sign an agreement with China. It is considered valid for 25 years and includes both political and economic agreements.
According to Tehran, Iran and China want to sign a comprehensive and long-term cooperation agreement this Saturday. The 25-year agreement includes “political, strategic and economic” agreements, said a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Sati Chatibasadeh, on state television. The agreement is to be signed on the occasion of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s current visit to Tehran.
Yi reached the Iranian capital on Friday evening. According to Chatibasadeh, he and his Iranian ally Mohammad Jawad Zarif should sign the cooperation agreement around noon.
Tehran believes the agreement could “very effectively help deepen Sino-Iranian relations,” Chatibasadeh said. The spokesperson recalled Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Tehran five years ago, during which the foundation for the Comprehensive Cooperation Agreement was laid. Xi and his Iranian ally Hasan Ruhani decided to strengthen bilateral relations between their countries. As a result, the two sides agreed to work together, among other things, in the transportation, energy and industrial sectors.
