The president noted that Tehran and Beijing aim to increase their trade exchanges in near future, saying, "The main objective pursued by both countries is to quickly bring our economic and trade exchanges to $100 billion.”

“Today we should join hands and move in line with the progress of our nations because future belongs to our nations,” he went on to say.
