Albanian Foreign Minister Ditmir Bushati is in Iran at top of a trade and economic delegation to discuss the further expansion of bilateral economic ties with Iranian officials.
He is scheduled to meet with Iranian officials including his Iranian counterpart Mohammd-Javad Zarif during his two-day stay in Iran.
His visit to Iran comes in line with bilateral diplomatic ties between Iran and Albania.
Early December 2013, Bushati and Iran's former Ambassador to Tirana Abdolmajid Mozzafari stressed that the abundant capacities and potentials of the two countries should be utilized in a proper manner to expand mutual cooperation between the two states in all fields.
In a meeting in Tirana, the top Albanian diplomat underlined the high capacity of Albania and Iran in different fields, such as economy and culture, and called for expansion of bilateral ties with Tehran.
Mozzafari, for his part, said that the new administration in Iran is ready to expand bilateral ties with Albania in various arenas.
The Iranian diplomat added that maintaining and developing friendly ties with all nations, including Albania, is a principal policy of Iran and the political intention is to take effective steps towards developing all-out relations between the two nations.
