In a Saturday message to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi congratulated the National Day of the People’s Republic of China.
“The world is now facing challenges, overcoming which requires closer cooperation among the independent states and coming up with universal solutions in order to fulfill the human’s common interests,” Raisi said in the message.
Voicing Iran’s support for the ‘global development’ and ‘global security’ initiatives proposed by Xi Jinping, the Iranian president described them as ideas based upon the collective interests of nations that focus on the improvement of welfare and strengthening global peace and stability.
