Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said Iran’s relations with Algeria are on the right track, highlighting constant political consultations between the top authorities of the two states. 
“We are determined to continue these consultations at a broader level,” he said at a joint press briefing with his Algerian counterpart, Ahmed Attaf, in Tehran on Saturday, ISNA reported. 
Algeria’s top diplomat arrived in Tehran on Friday for talks with top Iranian officials. 
He co-chaired a meeting of the two countries’ delegations before holding bilateral talks with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi. 
At the press conference, he said Tehran-Algiers relations are very extensive at different national and international areas. 
“The two countries’ ties are historical and excellent with a bright future prospect,” he said. 
Both countries agreed that bilateral cooperation can be expanded in various sectors, including science and technology, health, medicine, tourism and new energies, according to Amir-Abdollahian. 
They also discussed regional issues, such as Palestine, Syria’s return to the Arab League and the unrest in Sudan, he added. 
“Regarding cooperation at global level and within international organizations, the two countries share similar views,” he said. 
Attaf also said he was satisfied with the meeting, saying the discussions can revitalize bilateral relations. 
“We agreed to focus more on areas of common high priority, such as energy, industry, science and technology, as it can improve the two countries’ synergy,” he said. 
He also welcomed the positive developments regarding Iran’s relations with regional Arab states, especially the normalization with Saudi Arabia, hoping this important step would help coordination among all regional states against challenges ahead. 
“We agreed to cooperate further to enhance the operations of international organizations toward promoting peace and fighting extremism,” he said.
