Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif participated in the inauguration ceremony of the Bolivian President-elect Luis Arce.

Zarif arrived in La Paz on Saturday night and met with Arce.

He congratulated Arce over his election and underlined the importance of reinforcing relations.

Iran will stand by the Bolivian government and people, he noted.

Meanwhile, Arce said that his country seeks to further develop relations with Iran.
