TEHRAN (FNA)- Denmark's Ambassador to Tehran Anders Christian Hugard and
Governor-General of Iran's Northeastern Khorassan Razavi province Mohammad
Hossein Forouzanmehr called for the expansion of bilateral ties and
cooperation between the two nations.

They made the remarks in a meeting in the Northeastern Iranian city of
Mashhad on Sunday.

At the meeting, the Danish envoy said that his country is ready for cultural
exchanges with Iran.

Hugard also said that Denmark is prepared to cooperate with the Islamic
Republic, specially with Khorassan Razavi province, in combating drug
trafficking.

The Khorassan Razavi governor-general, for his part, said that Iran is ready
to exchange workforce and university students with Denmark.

Last month, Hugard and Co-Chairman of Iran-Denmark Parliamentary Friendship
Group Abbas Moqtadaei called for the expansion of bilateral ties and
cooperation between the Iranian and Danish nations.

The remarks were made in a meeting held in Tehran.

Moqtadaei expressed the hope that enhanced cultural relations would lead to
expansion of parliamentary relations between the two countries.

To attain the goal, it is incumbent upon both sides to explore and identify
untapped potentials and capabilities in various fields, he said.

Constructive, effective and friendly talks bring mutual understanding
between the two nations and prepare grounds for expansion of bilateral
relations, Moqtadaei pointed out.

Hugard, for his part, termed formation of Iran-Denmark parliamentary
friendship group as significant and effective to develop relations and
cooperation between the two countries.

The current cooperation in the field of culture, tourism, science and
academic exchanges are satisfactory, he said calling for boosting ties.

The ambassador expressed the hope to witness expansion of parliamentary
relations and economic cooperation between the two nations.

Late in 2011, Hugard voiced pleasure in the "good cultural and trade ties"
between the two countries, and said Tehran-Copenhagen relations are
developing.

Speaking to FNA on the sidelines of the 18th Media and News Agencies
Exhibition in Tehran, the Danish envoy said, "At present, the two countries
have good cultural and trade ties and I intend to promote these relations."

He reiterated that "there is not impediment to the further boosting of the
relations between Tehran and Copenhagen", and said issues and differences of
the past should not be brushed up.

"The presence of Iran's current ambassador in Denmark and the large number
of the Iranian students studying in my country indicate the two sides'
interest in developing relations," the diplomat underscored.
