In a meeting with Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece George Katrougalos in Tehran on Sunday, Takht-Ravanchi hailed the friendly relations between Iran and Greece, pointing to serious determination of both sides for expansion of political and economic relations, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Highlighting the two countries' shared views on many subjects, the Iranian diplomat said Tehran-Athens ties are growing in accordance with a roadmap the two countries have already signed.

He noted that energy, shipping, medicine and tourism are among grounds for mutual collaboration.

The Greek diplomat said the European country is ready for developing procedures to help boost trade interactions with Iran.

Iran and Greece signed a roadmap to closer ties in February, during Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' official visit to Tehran at the head of a high-powered economic delegation.
