Chinese analyst calls Iran 'pioneer of peace in region'

Beijing, Feb 12, IRNA - Iran is a pioneer of peace and stability in the region and has done much to promote peace during the last four decades, says director of Beijing-based Middle East Peace Forum.

'Although instability and insecurity in the Middle East have clouded the perspective of peace in the region, the Islamic Republic of Iran has always been seeking a durable and fundamental peace in the region and has taken steps in this path,” Kareem Qin Yong, director of Middle East Peace Forum told IRNA on Tuesday.

He praised Iran’s 'good relationships' with the world, 'especially with China', adding that Tehran has been always present in the international arena to promote political stability in the region.

Qin, who established China-Arab.com website as a platform to promote non-governmental cooperation between China and the Arab States in 2006, expressed hope that Tehran and Beijing expand their cooperation in 2019, for example in tourism. 'Many Chinese tourists want to travel to Iran and Iranian tourists can visit China as well,' he said.
