Tehran, YJC. Ayatollah Hashemi has said that Iran-Georgia relations present the best model of cooperation between an Islamic and a Christian state.

The Chairman of Expediency Council (EC) Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani who was talking to the visiting Georgian Parliament Speaker David Usupashvili in Tehran pointed to the agreements signed by the two states during presidency of Eduard Shevardnadze ' as very important.'

Surely, considering existing capacities, there are yet grounds for cooperation, but they need political will to be fulfilled, Rafsanjani added.

The senior Iranian politician called civilization, culture and common history as an important asset for both countries, and said that Georgian's traces in Iran's civilization and cultural symbols, especially in historical sites of Isfahan are so evident.

Ayatollah Hashemi further provided comments on situations in Georgia during independence days and Iran's assistances to the Georgian people and officials in those days, when electricity and gas were cut off.
