Iranian, Chinese Cities to Sign Sister City Accord

Culture - The Iranian city of Qazvin and the Chinese city of Haikou have a plan to ink a sister city agreement in a bid to coordinate their efforts in consolidating all-out relations, specially in trade and tourism domains.

A delegation of China is in Qazvin to draft a memorandum of understanding between the two cities. The delegation also paid a visit to Qazvin’s historical and tourism centers, and attended the City Council’s meeting on Saturday.

Head of Haikou’s City Council International Affairs Lin King Sheng told the meeting that Qazvin enjoys many tourism attractions, and that sisterhood agreement between Haikou and Qazvin would help extend relations.

Sheng also officially invited Qazvin City Council members for a visit to Chinese Southern city so that they make an acquaintance with Haikou’s industrial and tourism potentials.

In the meeting, Qazvin’s Deputy Head of City Council Ali Farahzadi expressed gratitude for Chinese delegation visit to Qazvin to develop economic and tourism relations.

Iran is currently China's third largest supplier of crude, providing Beijing with roughly 12 percent of its total annual oil consumption.
