Iran's Foreign Minister Amir Abdallahiyan met with his Malaysian counterpart Zambry Abdul kadir in Tehran on Monday as the two countries seek to expand relations.
Iran’s top diplomat said a session of Iran-Malaysia joint economic commission would convene in Tehran in the near future and hold regular sessions to discuss consular, trade, economic and cultural issues and the fight against terrorism.
He noted that diplomatic efforts are underway to organize visits by Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi to Kuala Lumpur and the Malaysian prime minister to Tehran.
