Constructive interaction and development of relations with the friend country of Italy, as an important country in the European Union, based on the principle of mutual respect and interests has been a priority for the Islamic Republic of Iran in the past decades.
Fortunately, under this policy, relations between the two countries have had a positive trend in the recent years. I hope that in Your Excellency’s term of office, through political will and serious determination of the authorities of the two countries, bilateral, regional and international cooperation further develop to serve mutual interest and the existing agreements and pacts signed before, especially the agreement of line of credit, become implemented.
I wish Your Excellency health and success and the people of the Italian Republic prosperity and felicity.
