The meeting between Chinese Ambassador Chang Hua and members of the Iran-China parliamentary friendship group revolved around economic cooperation between Tehran and Beijing.

The Chinese envoy also welcomed the promotion of cultural interaction between the two nations considering their rich history.

The two sides called for efforts to prepare the necessary infrastructures to boost the economic and cultural ties and facilitate the bilateral relations.

In August 2019, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited China to explore avenues for the expansion of strategic relations between the two nations in talks with senior Chinese officials.

In a meeting in Beijing, Zarif and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi discussed various issues related to bilateral relations, the latest developments in the implementation of the JCPOA, a roadmap for Iran-China ties in the next 25 years, the security of the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz, and the illegal and unilateral sanctions imposed by the United States on independent countries.

Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations announced in July 2020 that the 25-year roadmap between Tehran and Beijing for strategic partnership is nothing out of the ordinary and stems from age-old relations between the two countries.
