so many years. It should try not to interfere in the Middle East for 10 years. Let’s see if the region’s security returns to its original state.

  GT: The US and Poland are jointly organizing a global conference on the Middle East in Warsaw next month which is described by some as an “anti-Iranian summit.” What’s your comment?

 In our knowledge, the Warsaw conference has not been welcomed by the international community. If this meeting is finally held, it will have an adverse impact on West

ern Europe and our region. The conference is an act of interference in the affairs of other countries. I think Poland will someday regret holding such a conference.

  GT: You have just taken office, what are your priorities for China-Iran relations?

  Kesriority is to deepen the relationship between Iran and China, not only in the economic sphere, but also in cultural and political fields. Iran and China complement each other in many ways. As for economic cooperation, there is still a lot of potential to explore.

  However, there is a shortcoming in our relations. Compared with the stage of development of our relations, the understanding between our two peoples is not enough. I will focus on promoting mutual understanding between them.

  I am thinking about taking steps to attract Chinese tourists, such as providing tour guides who speak Chinese, and tailoring services according to Chinese people’s habits.

  The Belt and Road Initiative has provided a channel to achieve these goals.
