RNA - "Iran welcomes expanding parliamentary ties with Uruguay," Amir Abdollahian said in a meeting with Uruguayan Ambassador to Iran Carlos Sgarbi von Steinmann in Tehran on Thursday.
The senior advisor underlined that parliamentary relations can help create better understanding of the other side’s positions towards global events and developments.
"Boosting such interactions can also facilitate economic and commercial cooperation between the two countries," Amir Abdollahian added.
The Uruguayan ambassador, for his part, deemed as positive the growing economic and cultural cooperation between the two sides.
Sgarbi expressed the hope that bilateral transactions would turn out successful and contribute to the development of the two countries' economic and cultural relations.
In a relevant development in late July, Iranian Ambassador to Uruguay Abolfazl Pasandideh and Uruguay's Vice President and Senate Speaker Raul Sendic in a meeting in the Latin American country's capital called for broadening of bilateral ties in different fields.
During the meeting in Montevideo, Pasandideh and Sendic explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating mutual cooperation in different fields, political and economic relations in particular.
During the meeting, Pasandideh underlined that last year's visit to Iran by Sendic opened a new chapter in the two countries' relations, and voiced Tehran's eagerness to deepen cooperation with Montevideo in scientific, cultural, industrial and agricultural fields.
Sendic, for his part, expressed satisfaction over the momentum created in ties between the two countries, and emphasized his country’s readiness to expand bilateral relations with Iran, including holding the 6th Economic Joint Commission in the Uruguayan capital, Montevideo.
