Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi says Iran and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) should seriously pursue the objectives set for the expansion of bilateral cooperation.

Raisi made the remarks in Jakarta on Wednesday during a meeting with ASEAN Secretary-General Kao Kim Hourn.

During the meeting, Kao highlighted the importance of the role and position of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region and offered ASEAN’s proposals for expansion of interactions with Tehran.

Heading a high-ranking delegation, President Raisi departed Tehran for Jakarta late on Monday for a state visit which he described as a turning point in the development of ties between the two Muslim nations. The two sides signed 11 cooperation documents and memoranda of understanding (MoUs) to develop economic and political interactions in different fields.
