Iran Felicitates France on Hollande's Victory

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi in a meeting with France's former Prime Minister Michel Rocard extended his congratulations to the French people on the victory of Francois Hollande in the presidential election.



During the meeting, Salehi expressed hope that the election of Hollande will lead to the expansion of Tehran-Paris relations.

He congratulated France on the victory of Hollande, and expressed hope that the President-elect would adopt a new approach toward the expansion of bilateral relations in all aspects and based on mutual respect.

Rocard, for his part, underlined Iran's significant status, and expressed hope that an atmosphere of mutual respect would be created between Iran and European countries so that any possible issues would be resolved in line with both sides' interests and the reinforcement of global and regional peace and stability.

Rocard arrived in Tehran early Saturday on an unofficial three-day visit first planned for April but postponed after the 81-year-old was hospitalized in Stockholm in late March.
