Bilateral Relations: Iran and Belarus to boost parliamentary cooperation

Iran's Foreign Minster Manouchehr Mottaki yesterday underlined parliamentary cooperation between Iran and Belarus.

Mottaki made the remarks in a meeting with the Belarus Parliament Speaker Vladimir Andria Chenkov.

Chenkov, for his part, said that Belarus attaches more importance to Iran's role in the international scenes, especially in the Middle East.

He noted that like Iran, his country believes that the international organizations must enjoy fair structure, a reference to composition of the United Nations Security Council.

Iran has called for the Organization of the Islamic Conference to be represented at the UN Security Council with veto power.

Referring to signing a memorandum of understanding by the two sides, Chenkov said that Belarus has drafted a protocol on parliamentary cooperation which will hopefully be inked by Iran.

I am sure the two countries are well suited.
