TEHRAN, Iran, Apr.30

Trend:

The 25-year cooperation agreement between Iran and China is a symbol of developing ties and balance, said Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister on Economic Diplomacy Seyyed Rasoul Mohajer, Trend reports via IRNA.

"The Foreign Ministry of Iran is the main force behind developing the country's ties with China, as well as with Europe," he said.

"We had a similar document signed with Russia, and now we're seeking to expand this practice of signing documents with other neighboring states, including Afghanistan," said Mohajer.

Speaking of the Iran-China agreement, the official said it is mostly a road map, within which Iran looks to preserve its interests and independence.

"This is a win-win cooperation. We do not solely offer our market to one country. Based on this road map we should sign contracts and start operations," he said.

"Iran's ties with European countries are unfortunately less developed that with neighboring countries, due to US policies," Mohajer added.

He said that one of the responsibilities of Foreign Ministry is to create balance in economic ties with other countries.
