India, Iran Sign 9 Agreements During Hassan Rouhani’s Visit: MoUs On Medicine, Trade And Connectivity Key Highlights


Iran president Hassan Rouhani visited India between 15 and 17 February. In his first-ever visit after taking over as President of Iran, Rouhani met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday and held “substantive and productive” talks to boost cooperation in areas of defence and security, trade and investment, and energy, the Ministry of External Affairs said.
