On the sidelines of the Majlis’s open session on Sunday, Alaeddin Boroujerdi hinted at the achievements of Iran's parliamentary delegation to Mexico and stated the visit had been set up by the official invitation of Mexican Senate's Foreign Relations Committee chief who had visited Iran twice in the past year.
The Iranian MP said that during the trip, in addition to cultural, trade and economic ties, parliamentary cooperation topics were also addressed by the two sides along with an MoU signed for relations in various areas.
Boroujerdi noted that Iran and Mexico face some problems in their fight on drug trafficking and during the meeting the two countries discussed their experiences in confronting drug-related crimes.
During the visit, the sides agreed to allocate 50 pct. of scholarships to students to learn Persian and Spanish.
"Due to Iran’s capabilities in the field of organ transplantation,” Boroujerdi added "Mexican authorities have expressed interest in learning and gaining experience in that field field which we are attempting to discuss with the Minister of Health.”
Boroujerdi further explained that the avoidance of double taxation to help facilitate trade and economic relations between the two countries were among other things agreed upon by the two countries’ legislative bodies.
