TEHRAN (Iran News) – The ambassador of Iran to Brazil Hossein Gharibi referred to huge economic damages inflicted upon the two countries by the novel coronavirus pandemic, calling for the expansion of cooperation between Tehran and Brasilia to compensate for such losses.
The 60th anniversary of the opening of Iran’s Embassy in Brasilia was held through a webinar on Saturday, June 06.
During the ceremony, besides the emphasis on the pandemic damages, Gharibi described Iran and Brazil as two friends with long-standing cooperation for 117 years, underlining Iran’s interest in paving the way for long-term economic relations through a comprehensive framework and sustainable and balanced cooperation.
He noted that it is necessary to boost mutual ties more than before since both countries have been severely hit by the malignant pandemic.
Brazilian Ambassador to Iran Rodrigo de Azeredo Santos, who also participated in the webinar, described the friendly relations between the two countries as “the path of strengthening and securing national interests based on mutual respect,” adding that there is a lot of potentials that need to be exploited in this regard.
Iran was the first country to move its embassy from Rio de Janeiro to the new capital of Brazil, Brazil, on June 7, 1960.
