Iran, Serbia Discuss Expansion of Bilateral Ties

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tehran and Belgrade underlined the need for the enhancement of bilateral relations in all fields.

The Issue was raised in a meeting between Serbia's President Tomislav Nikolic and Iran's new Ambassador to Belgrade Majid Fahimpour in the Serbian capital on Tuesday.

Fahimpour pointed to the role of Serbia in promoting security and stability in the Balkan region, calling for enhancement of relations between Iran and Serbia in different areas.
During the meeting, the new Iranian ambassador submitted his credentials to the Serbian president.

Nikolic, for his part, expressed the hope that the new Iranian ambassador's tenure will lead to further expansion of Tehran-Belgrade ties.

In mid-February, Iranian First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi underlined Tehran's willingness to further boost bilateral relations with Belgrade.

In a message to Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dachich, Rahimi congratulated the Serbian nation and government on the country's National Day.

Rahimi also hoped that bilateral ties will further improve in all the fields in the light of joint efforts on the basis of mutual respect.

Iran and Serbia have in recent years made great efforts to further develop their bilateral relations and mutual cooperation in all fields.

In May 2010, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said at a meeting with Serbian Ambassador to Iran Alexander Tasich that there is no impediment to the further expansion of Iran-Serbia ties, and called for bolstering cooperation between the two sides.

Ahmadinejad further pointed out that Iran and Serbia's memberships in such international bodies and circles as the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) provides a proper ground for the consolidation of cooperation and coordination between the two countries in the international arena.
