He said he hopes that Ambassador Shahidi, in any position, will always act as a bridge of friendship to promote cooperative relations between Viet Nam and Iran.
The Iranian diplomat said he is very impressed by Viet Nam's achievements in its process of national construction and socio-economic development.
