TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of IranThailand Parliamentary Friendship Group Iraj Nadimi said the two countries are resolved to further expand their bilateral relations in all fields, and added that a ranking Iranian parliamentary delegation will pay an official visit to the Southeast Asian country soon to discuss growing cooperation with Thai lawmakers. Nadimi voiced Iran’s readiness for bolstering bilateral ties with the friendly county of Thailand, and said a four-member parliamentary delegation will depart Tehran for Bangkok on October 25 to this end. The Iranian group will be holding meetings with Thai parliamentarians, and explore avenues for further enhancement of parliamentary, trade, economic and industrial cooperation between Iran and Thailand during their eight-day visit, Nadimi pointed out. Late in July, former Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in a meeting with Thai Prime Minister Office’s Minister Niwatthamrong Bunsongphaisan, said friendship between Iran and Thailand has been rooted in history, and stressed the need to boost all-out cooperation between the two nations.

Mutual cooperation between Tehran and Bangkok in the
international arenas will undoubtedly bring various significant achievements,
the Iranian president reiterated. The Thai official, for his part, said his
country welcomes expansion of relations with friendly Iran. Tehran and Bangkok
have recently augmented their efforts to further bolster their economic ties
and exchanges. Iran and Thailand’s top diplomats in a meeting on the sidelines
of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York in 2011 had explored avenues for
the further expansion of relations and cooperation. During the meeting in
September 2011, former Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi underlined
Tehran’s resolve to further expand relations with Thailand, and voiced Iran’s
preparedness to promote the level of cooperation with Bangkok in all the
various political, economic, trade, cultural and scientific grounds. Salehi
further cited the two countries’ coordination at international bodies and
circles as among other areas for Tehran-Bangkok cooperation. He also described
exchange of delegations at different levels as a constructive measure for
expediting development of bilateral relations and cooperation. Also during the
meeting, the Thai foreign minister underlined the two countries’ cordial ties,
and asked for the bolstering and boosting of Tehran-Bangkok cooperation through
continued and regular political consultations and follow-ups on the agreements
made by the two states’ joint economic cooperation commission and consular
cooperation committee. (Source)
