Feb 10, Colombo: Sri Lanka and Iran are currently enjoying excellent ties and boast numerous capacities, especially in the fields of commerce, economy, health and culture, the Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has said.

The Iranian Foreign Minister has said the two countries enjoy abundant potentials and capacities for developing their all-out relations, the official Iranian news agency FNA reported.
