TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Reaffirming his administration’s resolve to broaden ties with Muslim countries, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi called for the expansion of economic and trade relations with Bangladesh.
In a telephone conversation with Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina on Monday, Raisi stressed the need for convergence and unanimity of the Islamic countries in supporting Palestine and condemning the aggressions of the Zionist regime, especially the brutal Israeli actions in Al-Aqsa Mosque and against the fasting Palestinian people.
Congratulating the government and the Muslim nation of Bangladesh on Eid-al-Fitr, Raisi said the foreign policy of Iran is based on the development and strengthening of relations with the countries of the world, especially the Islamic countries.
He also expressed hope for good relations between Iran and Bangladesh, especially the promotion of economic and commercial cooperation.
Sheikh Hasina, for her part, strongly condemned the criminal actions of the Zionist regime against the Palestinian people, adding, “Supporting the oppressed people of Palestine and condemning the aggressions of the Zionist regime is the fixed position of the government and the people of Bangladesh.”
Highlighting the importance of developing relations with Iran, she emphasized on strengthening these relations, especially in the commercial and economic fields and regional cooperation.
