Nicaragua Underlines Irans Vital Role in Region
TEHRAN, May 01, 2014 (FNA)- Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Samuel Santos Lopez underscored that Irans logical and constructive role in the settlement of the regional problem and its eye-catching capabilities in various arenas have persuaded Managua to put expansion of ties with Tehran atop its agenda.
Speaking at a meeting with Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in Tehran on Tuesday, Lopez underlined the important role of Tehran in the establishment of peace and stability in the region and welcomed promotion of relations in all fields particularly in the field of economy.
Lopez arrived in Tehran at the head of a high-ranking delegation on Monday morning.
Iran has been seeking to boost its ties with Latin American countries in recent years to the concern of the United States.
The strong and rapidly growing ties between Iran and Latin America have raised eyebrows in the US and its western allies since Tehran and Latin nations have forged an alliance against the imperialist and colonialist powers and are striving hard to reinvigorate their relations with the other independent countries which pursue a line of policy independent from the US.
