TEHRAN, Aug. 29 (MNA) – Deputy Parliament Speaker Ali Motahari has called for cooperation between Iran and Vietnam in the international community, particularly on issues related to human rights.

“Western countries are making instrumental use of the human rights mechanism and adopting double-standard policies toward different countries. This necessitates closer cooperation between Iran and Vietnam on human rights issues,” said Deputy Parliament Speaker Ali Motahari in a Tuesday meeting with his Vietnamese counterpart Do Ba Ty in Tehran.

He went on to highlight the need for expanding cooperation with Vietnam in trade transactions, private sectors, economic cooperation, energy, development, and banking and financial affairs.

The Vietnamese official, for his part, said his visit as the head of a parliamentary delegation to Tehran, aims at improving the level of parliamentary relations between the two countries.

“Vietnam is fully aware of its close and friendly ties with Iran, and appreciates the Islamic Republic’s positive efforts for establishing peace and security in the region,” he added.

He went on to voice his country’s readiness to develop cooperation with Iran in the fields of economy and trade, science and new technologies, agriculture, as well as defense industry and national security.
