He said that the two sides discussed boosting bilateral ties as well as regional crises and terrorism as well as solutions to crises in the Middle Eastern states, including Iraq and Syria as they met in Tehran.
Bartolone is visiting Iran along with head of France-Iran parliamentary friendship group and some members of French defense and foreign policy commission.
