President Hassan Rouhani received the credentials of South Korean, Maltese, Cambodian, Slovenian, and Bosnian ambassadors on Monday. The first was Joseph Mongfion, Maltese new non-resident ambassador. Rouhani told Mr. Mongfion that Malta was enjoying excellent geographical position in the Mediterranean in terms of being a tourist destination, and that Iran and the country would cooperate in fields of interest, especially in economy, politics, and trade. “Both countries should work with each other to provide tourist and historical monuments information to our public to bestow upon a dynamism to relations; Maltese opportunities would attract Iranian investors to this island nation of the Mediterranean,” he said.
Mongfion for his part voiced his government’s resolve to strengthen ties with Iran and all-out cooperation.
