He added, "Officials of the two Muslim and revolutionary states move in a way to prepare ground for their countries' independence and development." "Visits by Libyan economic figures to Tehran show Tripoli's determination to further expand economic ties with Iran," Davoudi stated.

He expressed Iran's full readiness to promote ties with Libya in all fields particularly economic issues.

The first vice-president said, "Iranian Foreign Minister (Manouchehr Mottaki) and his Libyan counterpart (Abdel-Rahman Shalqam) can cooperate with each other in managing economic, political and cultural ties between the two states.”

He added Tehran is preparing ground for implementing ratifications of Iran-Libya Joint Economic Commission, held in Tehran in late December.
