Chinese President In Tehran For 1st Visit In 14 Years

Source: ASSOCIATED PRESS

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- The Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in Tehran Friday to hold talks with Iranian officials about future economic and political cooperation, Iran's state TV reported.

The report quoted Ebrahim Rahimpour, Iran's deputy foreign minister for Asia and Pacific affairs, as saying the Chinese president is in Tehran with a high-ranking political and economic delegation at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart President Hassan Rouhani.

"This is the first visit by a Chinese president in 14 years," Rahimpour said. "During his one-day official trip, he is expected to visit Iran's supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Rouhani."

The television report said total trade between Tehran and Beijing stood at some $52 billion dollars in 2014. However, that figure dropped in 2015 due to decreasing global oil prices.
