TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Parliament Speaker’s Special Aide for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said that Iran-China comprehensive cooperation document was concluded through the Supreme Leader's tact and foresight.

"With the tact and foresight of the Supreme Leader, within the framework of the will of the two countries leaders and Tehran- Beijing strategic ties, the document for 25-year comprehensive cooperation between Iran and China was signed by the foreign ministers," Amir-Abdollahian wrote on his Twitter account on Saturday evening.
