Kingdom maintains cooperation with Iran while giving aid

Governor of the General Organization for Technical Education and Vocational Training (GOTEVT) Dr. Ali Al-Ghifeis is in Teheran to review with his Iranian counterpart ways of enhancing bilateral cooperation in that area, in accordance with the memorandum of understanding that has been signed.

Meanwhile, Ambassador to Iran Dr. Nassir Al-Bireik, in an article in an Iranian newspaper published yesterday, commented that Saudi Arabia was one of the first countries to dispatch aid to victims of the recent earthquake, and would be the last to leave the devastated city of Bam. In addition to hundreds of tons of foodstuff and medical supplies, a 40-bed field hospital was set up. Saudi Arabia and Iran, he said, are linked with deep-rooted cultural and historical relations.
