It is essential for the two countries to bolster their economic ties in addition to political and security relations, he said, noting that parliaments assume of course an influential role in this respect.

Warning about the spread of terrorism in the region, he noted that extremist forces pose threat to all countries, and said : “We should help in uprooting extremist forces which are supported by certain states but we must root them out and promote democracy”.
