Agreement Between China And Iran

Published by at 1:54 am under Uncategorized

News of the pact came immediately after the Chinese president`s visit to Tehran, where Xi Jinping met with Iran`s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, who reportedly approved the deal. The comprehensive strategic partnership between I.R. Iran and P.R. China aims to give China preferential access to different sectors of the Iranian economy. However, according to recently disclosed information, the pact, once implemented, will go beyond economic cooperation and instead include unprecedented cooperation in the areas of transport and logistics in the ports and islands of southern Iran, as well as in the defence and security sector. The recently announced 25-year agreement between China and Iran seems to have become almost an urban myth among observers in the Middle East. The importance of the agreement was exaggerated and even the subject of conspiracy theories. It has been demonized both as a “shameful treaty” that allows China to exploit Iran`s natural resources, as reza Pahlavi claims on his Twitter, or as a sign of a “Chinese expansionist policy” that allows China to send soldiers around the world. 6-Given the willingness of both sides to strengthen relations between the two countries and to complement their economic potential, as well as the existence of many areas of joint cooperation, such as energy, infrastructure, industry and technology, the two sides agree to include consultations and discussions on the conclusion of a 25-year bilateral comprehensive cooperation agreement on their agenda. 3- Both sides stress the need to develop relations between central governments, provincial cooperation (local governments) and between their political groups and political parties, in order to exchange experiences and strengthen interactions in all areas. At the invitation of His Excellency, Mr. Hassan Rouhani, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, His ExcellencyM.

Xi Jinping, President of the People`s Republic of China, paid an official visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran from 22 to 23 January 2016. The two heads of state and government had in-depth exchanges in a climate of friendship and cordiality on cooperation in all areas of bilateral relations as well as on regional and international issues of mutual interest, thus concluding comprehensive agreements.
