Iran’s Ambassador to Bosnia Mahmoud Heydari and Bosnian Security Minister Dragan Mektic stressed the need for expanding cooperation between the two countries in the campaign against terrorism. During the meeting in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Friday, Heydari and Mektic explored avenues for bolstering bilateral ties in political fields, especially in the fight against terrorist groups, Fars News Agency reported. The Bosnian security minister said Sarajevo and Tehran should exchange information on various aspects of global security threats. The Iranian envoy referred to cultural and historical relations between Iran and Bosnia and said, “After the removal of unjust anti-Iran sanctions [as part of last year’s nuclear deal between Iran and major powers], the ground is now prepared for promotion of economic, industrial, agricultural and tourism cooperation between the two countries.” In relevant remarks in early November, Heydari and Mladen Ivanic, a member of Bosnia-Herzegovina Presidential Council, in a meeting in Sarajevo underlined the need for expanding mutual cooperation in different areas. “Terrorism, extremism and violence are serious dangers for the world and collective collaboration is required to fight them,” Ivanic said at the time.
