This came during the current visit to Libya of Vice President Parviz Davoudi, which began Wednesday. His trip aims to promote the bilateral relations between the two countries, especially in political, economic and cultural fields.

The Iranian high official held talks with the Libyan Prime Minister, El-Baghdadi Ali El-Mahmoudi, and other Libyan senior officials to strengthen cooperation between their two countries as well with the African continent.

In the press conference after the signing of the agreements, both the Iranian vice president and the Libyan prime minister stressed that their talks were fruitful and successful.

“We discussed the issues related to Iraq, Palestine and other issues, and our views are identical on all those issues,” El-Mahmoudi said in the press conference.

The Iranian vice president said, for his part, that developing ties with Muslims and revolutionary African countries are among the priorities of Iran’s foreign policy.

Davoudi arrived in Tripoli on Wednesday afternoon and is scheduled to depart for Djibouti on Thursday after two days of talks in Libya.
