Visiting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has met the press after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Shanghai. Rouhani spoke on China-Iran relations and expressed his support to the idea of the Silk Road Economic Belt.

"China is now Iran’s biggest trade partner. We have many cooperation with China on international and regional issues. I hope my visit to China could boost our bilateral ties," Rouhani said.

"We agree with the idea of the revival of the Silk Road. In the past, China has been engaged with the countries alongside the Silk Road in the aspects of culture, economy and trade, and also in other areas like energy and transportation. These ties between China and Iran and other countries in the region can be resumed. So the plan of Silk Road Economic Belt could be successful."
