Aug 07, Teheran: Welcoming the closer, friendlier ties with Sri Lanka, Iran has offered to provide the island nation with technical and engineering services.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to prepare the groundwork for providing Sri Lanka with technical-engineering services in all fields, especially energy," Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said.

President Rouhani has made this remark during a meeting on Sunday with Speaker of Sri Lanka Parliament, Karu Jayasuriya, who is visiting Teheran.

"Iran-Sri Lanka ties have always been friendly and close and today, with regard to the lift of sanctions, there are very good opportunities for developing relations between the two countries that can be taken advantage of to benefit the existing ties between parliaments and governments of the two countries," Rouhani said.

Stating that Iran welcomes closer and friendlier ties with Sri Lanka, Rouhani expressed hope that banking relations between the two countries be further developed to establish a solid base for cementing economic and commercial ties.

At the meeting, the Speaker of the Parliament of Sri Lanka, Karu Jayasuriya congratulated Dr. Rouhani on his re-election and said: "Iran and Sri Lanka has had historical, cultural ties and the people of Sri Lanka hold the Iranian nation in profound respect."

He also appreciated Iran for helping and supporting Sri Lanka in various fields, calling for the development of trade and economic ties between the two countries, especially in the post-sanctions era.
