MINSK, February 17. /TASS/. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday he hopes that Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko would visit the Islamic Republic soon.
Zarif said at a meeting with his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Makey Tehran wants to expand cooperation with Minsk.
"We hope that the Belarusian president’s visit will take place soon. This will create fertile soil for stronger relations," the foreign minister said, noting that mutual understanding and partnership had always existed between the two countries in the international arena.
Tehran and Minsk had very good trade and economic relations, whose potential was nowhere near exhausted, Zarif said.
Makey highlighted the need to optimise cooperation between the two states.
"Our task is to develop measures to boost our trade and economic cooperation, the Belarusian foreign minister said, adding that economic ties should "correspond to the level of political cooperation between the states".
