(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Iran First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri sent a message on Sunday to Moldovan Prime Minister Pavel Filip to congratulate him and the people in the Republic of Moldova on the country's National Day.
In the message, Jahangiri expressed hope to witness expansion of all-out relations and cooperation between the two countries in a way to serve both sides' interests.
The Iranian vice president also wished success and prosperity for the eastern European nation.
On February 2017, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani met his Moldovan counterpart Igor Dodon in Tehran.
“We should make use of all opportunities and capacities to expand all-out Tehran-Chisinau ties,” Rouhani said, adding that Iran was among the first countries to recognize Moldova’s independence.
On 27 August 1991, as part of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Moldavian SSR declared independence and took the name Moldova.
