TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Slovenia’s President Borut Pahor highlighted the impetus that Iran’s position, power and stability provides for the Central European country to forge closer relations with the Islamic Republic.

Iran’s significance, strategic position and stability in the Middle East gives Ljubljana enough motive for the expansion of relations with Tehran, Pahor said at a meeting with Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in Tehran on Wednesday.

The visiting president also referred to reopening of Slovenia’s embassy in Tehran earlier in the day as a testimony to the willingness for stronger relations with Iran, predicting a bright future for the bilateral ties in all fields.
