NDO/VNA - Speaker of the Parliament of Iran Ali Ardeshir Larijani appreciated the contributions made by the Vietnam-Iran Friendship Association (VIFA) to boosting people-to-people diplomacy between the two nations at his meeting with VIFA President Dang Nhu Loi in Hanoi on April 17.

The Speaker informed VIFA President Loi that, during his meetings with the senior Vietnamese leaders, they put forth important proposals, including opening Persian language classes for Vietnamese students, creating favourable conditions for Vietnamese students to learn in Iran, opening a direct air route between Vietnam and Iran, and developing more tours between the two countries.

He expressed his hope that the VIFA would maintain its active participation in the friendship, exchange and cooperation activities, thereby helping to further develop the bilateral friendship and cooperation between Iran and Vietnam.

VIFA President Loi briefed the Iranian leader on the VIFA’s activities since its establishment nine years ago, with the target of tightening the solidarity between the two countries and fostering bilateral economic ties – an important foundation of the Vietnam-Iran relations.

He hoped that, in the future, the Parliament of Iran would adopt more legal documents to develop their bilateral trade cooperation, friendship and people-to-people diplomacy, including activities of the VIFA and the Iran-Vietnam Friendship Association.
