On May 28, Qalibaf with 230 votes out of a total of 264 was elected as Iran's new parliament whose representatives were elected after the February elections in Iran.

As Sobotka said in his message, parliament as democracy's beaten heart plays a key role in societies.

Parliaments play an important role in and out of the countries to build confidence and relieve tensions through dialogue, the Austrian speaker said while expressing hope that parliamentary relations between Vienna and Tehran

ould be expanded.
