Italy calls for expansion of economic ties with Iran
Bandar Abbas, Sept 25, IRNA – Italian Ambassador to Tehran Mauro Conciatori in a meeting with Hormuzgan Governor General Jassem Jadari here on Saturday voiced his country's willingness to broaden economic and industrial relations with Iran.
'Iranian President (Hassan Rouhani) and Italian Prime Minister (Matteo Renzi) met in New York three days ago which was for the fourth time over past years; during this meeting the two sides underscored the need for doubling the efforts to broaden relations,' Conciatori said.
'Iran and Italy have deep familiarization about each other and they have been in contact with each other through Silk Road which can pave the way for development of communications between the two countries,' he added.
He pointed to the berthing of Italian warship in Bandar Abbas, and said, 'This presence is a sign of positive development in the two sides' communications.
