Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Indonesia’s ambassador in Tehran explored avenues for strengthening relations between the two Muslim nations, particularly in the economic sphere, as well as in the oil and gas industry.

In a meeting with Octaviano Alimuddin, the Indonesian envoy, on Wednesday, Larijani said trade and economic interactions between the two countries have not developed as fast as the political and parliamentary ties, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Calling for efforts to boost economic cooperation, Larijani voiced Iran’s readiness to attract Indonesian investment in its oil and gas projects.

He referred to tourism industry as another suitable ground for enhancement of ties.

Alimuddin expressed the Southeast Asian country’s readiness to work with Iran in the oil and gas industry. He also announced plans for visits to Iran by Indonesia’s president and parliament speaker in the near future.
