Guangdong plays important role in Iran-China ties: Iranian consul

Tehran, IRNA – Iran’s consul general in Guangzhou Hossein Darvishi Motavalli said that China is the first trade and strategic partner of Iran and Guangdong Province plays the main role in trade cooperation between the two countries.

In interview with Guangdong state news website GDToday, Hossein Darvishi Motavalli described the province as a ‘civilized, developed and growing’ one, which is expected to lead closer ties between Iran and Chine on trade, science, and technology.

He pointed to the signing of the comprehensive cooperation plan between Iran and Chine in March, saying that the plan was a road map and a turning point in the new stage of cooperation between Tehran and Beijing.
