EghtesadOnline: In a world turned into a global small village, lack of relations with other countries and lack of understanding for the world is going to produce economic backwardness, says Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.

According to IRNA, the chairman of Iran's Expediency Council made the remarks on Monday in a meeting with a group of media and industry officials, directors and experts.

Many foreign officials who visit Iran praise the country's security, its strategic position and the loyalty of its people to the establishment, Rafsanjani said.

They wonder what the secret is behind Iran's sustainable security amid all the crises overwhelming the Middle East, he said. 

Referring to the foreign delegations rushing to visit Iran following the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action, Rafsanjani said the European diplomats and heads of state are still eager to resume relations with Iran.

Like old days, the western countries are still interested today to expand cooperation with Iran, said the senior cleric.
