China and Iran sign deal for closer cooperation
The two leaders signed 17 agreements on a range of issues from energy to boosting trade to $600 billion.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he and Xi had signed a “comprehensive 25-year document” on strategic relations.
They also discussed terrorism, instability in the Middle East, as well as “science, modern technology, culture, tourism… security and defence issues,” President Rouhani said on Iranian TV.
President Xi is also due to meet Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei during his 24-hour visit.
He is the first Chinese president to visit Tehran in over a decade.
International sanctions on Iran were lifted last week after it agreed to roll back the scope of its nuclear activities.
