Iran, Cambodia urge global peace
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stressed the importance of utilizing the universals shared by Iran and Cambodia to the benefit of global peace.
Iran and Cambodia both enjoy great potentials and shared points of view which should be used to serve national interests and international peace, Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with Cambodian Foreign Minister Hor Namhong in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Wednesday.
“Iran and Cambodia belong to the Eastern civilizations which exhibit culture, morality and friendship. These human characteristics can serve as good ground for bolstering relations,” IRNA quoted the Iranian chief executive as saying.
President Ahmadinejad voiced readiness to share experience with Cambodia in various fields of agriculture, science, technology and research.
Namhong, for his part, called for promoting cooperation with the Islamic Republic in many sectors, including energy, investment, tourism, agriculture and industry.
The expansion of relations between Tehran and Phnom Penh can play a role in deepening Iran’s ties with East Asian countries.
