‘I had the privilege and honor of holding a meeting with H.E. Seyed Ebrahim Raisi, president of the Islamic Republic of Iran,’ informed the head of the ALBA-TCP.
‘We extended the congratulations of ALBA-TCP for having taking office, we talked about our coincidences and the agenda in common,’ LLorenti tweeted.
During the meeting, Iran’s head of State expressed the Islamic Republic and the ALBA-TCP member States have common values; thus, the deepening of political and economic ties with Latin America is one of the priorities of that country’s foreign policy.
Raisi also stressed the need to increase the level of cooperation and coordination in several bilateral, regional and international areas with adequate planning and preparation, according to a press release issued by Venezuela’s Foreign Ministry.
In recent statements, the executive secretary highlighted the commitment of the Latin American and Caribbean integration bloc to strengthen cooperation ties with Iran.
Llorenti affirmed that beyond bilateral relations between Iran and the Alliance’s member countries, ‘there are great coincidences on how we understand the world should work,’ he indicated on an interview granted to Iran’s Hispantv news agency.
