In a meeting with ICCIMA Chairman Gholam-Hossein Shafeie in Brussels, the Belgian official expressed satisfaction about the future of his country’s economic relations with Iran and added that on the way to explore avenues for developing bilateral economic ties, a Belgian delegation will pay a visit to the two Iranian cities of Tehran and Isfahan in November.
