Iran, China to Sign Defense Agreement

The visiting Chinese defense minister is to sign an agreement on defense and military cooperation in Tehran.
General Chang Wanquan has traveled to Iran at the head of a high-ranking delegation, as Tehran and Beijing seek to boost defense collaboration.
Wanquan's aircraft touched down in Tehran on Sunday for an official three-day visit. He was officially invited to visit the Islamic Republic by Iranian Defense Minister Lieutenant General Hossein Dehqan.
An official reception ceremony is to be held for the Chinese defense chief on Monday, Press TV reported.
In addition to meeting with Dehqan, the visit is to feature discussions with other senior Iranian defense officials and political authorities over issues of mutual interest as well as regional and international affairs.
Back in September, China's Ambassador to Iran Pang Sen announced that delegations from Iranian and Chinese armed forces plan to exchange visits.
Dehqan had traveled to China in May 2014 to negotiate mutual visits and personnel training cooperation between the two countries.
Last April, the defense chiefs met in Russia during the fourth Moscow International Security Conference, with Dehqan saying the two sides were determined to strengthen mutual relations in the defense sector.
