TEHRAN, April 11 (Xinhua) -- The Iranian Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism held a ceremony in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Tuesday to welcome Chinese tourists visiting the country.

The ceremony, held at the Saadabad Cultural and Historical Complex, was attended by Chinese Ambassador to Tehran Chang Hua and Ali Asghar Shalbafian, deputy Iranian minister of cultural heritage, handicrafts and tourism for tourism affairs.

In an address to the ceremony, Chang said China and Iran enjoy traditional friendship and their comprehensive strategic partnership has been developing steadily in recent years.
