Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani received two top lawmakers from African states on Saturday to discuss bilateral relations.

The African parliamentarians were in Iran to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the reelected President Hassan Rouhani, ISNA reported.

In a meeting with Abdelfattah Mourou, the deputy speaker of Tunisian Parliament, Larijani said the Islamic Republic is ready to develop economic collaboration with Tunisia, particularly in the fields of mining, energy and industries.

Larijani said Muslims should unite to tackle challenges disrupting calm in the region, particularly the spreading menace of terrorism.

Mourou stressed the need for greater unity in Muslim nations, noting that only with closer solidarity, Muslims will be able to advance their shared goals.

In a meeting with Ghanaian Deputy Parliament Speaker Alban Samana, Larijani said there is huge potential for economic cooperation, especially in the field of energy.

"The two countries can engage in close collaboration in the oil, gas and petrochemicals sectors," he said, adding that the ground is also prepared for agricultural cooperation.

Samana said his trip to Iran at the head of a parliamentary delegation is a testimony to the strong will of Ghana for developing bonds of friendship with Tehran.

The Ghanaian parliamentarian called for increased economic relations, stressing that closer parliamentary cooperation could help boost mutual trade.

Larijani also on Saturday met other top foreign lawmakers and officials who were present at the inauguration ceremony.
