I hope that the parliaments of the two countries will be able to interact more with each other in the form of friendship groups and specialized commissions, and that this cooperation will expand, especially in the economic fields, with the activities of the private sectors of the two countries.

In this context, it is very important to remember that 80 years ago, the noble people of Iran hosted Polish refugees in World War II.
"As a former member of the Parliamentary Economic Committee, I believe that parliamentary diplomacy can be very effective in expanding relations between the two countries," he said.
Today, there are great opportunities to strengthen economic relations between the two countries.
Rao added that parliamentary diplomacy, which could play a vital role, should be expanded in order to develop relations between the two countries:
Certainly, after the corona subsides, parliamentary visits between the two countries will resume, and we will encourage the parliaments in this regard. Cultural exchanges are the result of cultural interactions between the two countries.
