Zarif, Thai PM Explore Fields of Cooperation

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif discussed ways of fostering mutual cooperation with Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha in the capital Bangkok on Friday.
In the meeting held on the fourth leg of his Asia-Pacific tour, the two dignitaries exchanged views about expansion of bilateral ties and stressed the need for closer ties, IRNA reported.
Late on Thursday, Zarif also met his Thai counterpart, Don Pramudwinai, and discussed the potentials for expanding economic and political relations.
Zarif expressed Tehran's willingness to engage in economic partnership with Thailand.
"Iran is ready to transfer its experiences to other countries, especially in the field of technology," he said.
The Thai foreign minister said the southeastern Asian country is keen on increasing cooperation in economic spheres.
Earlier on Thursday, Zarif participated in the 14th ministerial meeting of the Asian Cooperation Dialogue.
Addressing the meeting, Zarif said Iran gives high importance to regional cooperation, especially to help develop Asia and fight against terrorism and extremism.
"We believe that through collective and coordinated efforts, in addition to promoting the spirit of group solidarity, the ground can be prepared for increased regional cooperation aimed at promoting welfare and development of member states and finally establishing a home for Asians," he said.
Meeting on the sidelines of event, Zarif and ACD's Secretary-General Bundit Limschoon reviewed the possibilities of enhancing cooperation among major members.
The meeting opened on Friday, aiming to make preparations for the heads of state's summit, scheduled for summer in Thailand.
The 33-member ACD is an international organization established in 2002 to promote Asian cooperation and help integrate various regional organizations. Zarif, at the head of a politico-economic delegation, arrived in Bangkok on Wednesday night, after departing from Brunei's capital of Bandar Seri Begawan.
Indonesia and Singapore were the first two stages of Zarif's six-country tour and he will visit New Zealand and Australia as the final parts of the long travel.
Zarif's 11-day tour is aimed at taking advantage of the opportunities emerging for the country following the removal of sanctions.
