Noting that many agreements have been signed between the two governments of Iran and Uzbekistan, and necessary steps to legalize those agreements have been taken in the parliament, Ghazalje added, "The visit of the speaker of the Parliament of Uzbekistan was made at the invitation of Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf and came after the recent visit of the Iranian speaker to Uzbekistan."

He added that the Uzbeks are interested in learning from the 117 years of legislative experience in Iran, adding that during Ghalibaf's visit to Uzbekistan, it was agreed that parliamentary cooperation would expand at different levels.

Ghazalje stated that the President of Uzbekistan will visit Iran in early June, adding, "The previous agreements will definitely be followed up on during his visit and new agreements will probably be concluded."

"The level of cooperation between the two countries has increased and Uzbeks are interested in cooperation with the Islamic Republic," he underscored.
