Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to Iran this week will be an extraordinary event for the relationship between the two nations, said Pang Sen, Chinese ambassador to Iran, on Monday.

Pang made the remarks in an interview with Chinese media in Iran regarding Xi's Middle East visit.

"It is the first visit to Iran by a high ranking Chinese leader in 14 years. The visit demonstrates that China attaches great importance to the Middle East region and our ties with Iran," the ambassador said.

During the visit, China and Iran will sign memorandums of agreements concerning various issues including cooperation, inter-connectivity, energy, information and communications and cultural exchange, Pang said.
