Iranian Envoy, Mexican Senior Diplomat Discuss Ways to Broaden Ties.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Ambassador to Mexico City Mohammad Taqi Hosseini and Carolina Zaragoza Flores, Head of Mexican Foreign Ministry consular services, in a meeting in the capital city of the American country, exchanged views on different avenues for bolstering two-way ties.

Hosseini, in a Twitter post, released a photo of his meeting with Flores, saying that they have discussed issues related to Iranians living in Mexico.

The Iranian envoy said that he is proud to accompany the Iranian community which is among the best communities living in Mexico.

He also added that he has had separate meetings with high-ranking officials of the country responsible for immigration.

Back in mid-March, President of the Senate of Mexico MartE[degrees] Batres Guadarrama, in a meeting with Hosseini, said that Tehran is playing a very constructive role in promoting multilateralism in the world and fighting unilateralism with its balancing role.

Guadarrama said Iran has an undeniable role in preserving and developing multilateralism, adding that promotion of bilateral ties between the two nations will benefit Iranian and Mexican people.

He described as important broadening relations between the two countries both from geopolitical and civilizational aspects.

Guadarrama added that Iran is an important country enjoying pivotal role in creating balance in the world.

Mexico is against concentration of power in one pole resulting in unilateralism, he said.

Expressing satisfaction over Iran-Mexico developing relations, especially in parliamentary fields, Guadarrama said the Senate of Mexico supports broadening ties with Iran.

Meanwhile, Hosseini stressed the importance of reinforcing parliamentary relations, saying exchanging parliamentary delegations can help strengthen relations.

Referring to the 115th anniversary of relations between Iran and Mexico held in the Senate of Mexico in 2017, Iranian envoy hailed both countries' cooperation in international organizations.

He also stressed Iran's attempts to adopt Mexico as chairman of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).

Back in 2017, Mexican Ambassador to Iran Alfonso Zegbe underlined the need for broadening of mutual cooperation between Mexico City and Tehran.

"We are willing to cooperate with Iran in the economic and trade fields," Zegbe said in a meeting with Chairman of Alborz Chamber of Commerce Rahim Bana Molayee in Karaj city on May 28, 2017.

He reiterated that Mexico exports food and canned products to China, Malaysia, Japan, Philippines and the US, and said, "We are ready to cooperate with Iran in the field."

Zegbe, meantime, pointed to the Mexican commercial cooperation with Muslim countries in the field of Halal food products, and said that his country could produce and export Halal food to those countries, under Iran's Halal license.

Calling Bandar Abbas's Customs a suitable place for Iran-Mexico's commercial exchanges, the Mexican ambassador expressed the hope that the agreements between the two countries might provide the ground for business relations.
