“Without a doubt, this visit marks a beginning for further development of Tehran-Sarajevo ties,” said Dr Rouhani.

Dr Rouhani added: “Today, in the post-JCPOA era, conditions are completely ideal for further development of ties between the two countries and we discussed ways of developing ties in scientific, cultural and tourism fields”.

“Today, there is peaceful coexistence among all ethnic and religious groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina and this can be a good groundwork for us to develop peace, stability and development in this country,” Dr Rouhani went on saying.

On terrorism, Dr Rouhani said: “Regional issues, such as extremism and terrorism are great threats to the region and the world and both sides believe that they should boost cooperation in this field”.

President Rouhani also mentioned cultural cooperation between Tehran and Sarajevo and said: “Without a doubt, promoting moderate Islam can be a key base for cultural relations among Muslins in Europe, especially those living in Bosnia and Herzegovina”.

He also expressed hope that the visit by the President of Bosnia and Herzegovina to Iran accelerate development of Tehran-Sarajevo relations.

At the same press conference, President of Bosnia and Herzegovina said: “The Islamic Republic of Iran has contributed a lot to ending the war and establishing peace and stability in Bosnia”.

We are determined to remove the obstacles that are on the way of fostering ties between the two countries, continued Bakir Izetbegović.
