Iran Keen to Expand Business Ties with Uganda: FM

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the Islamic Republic is interested in promoting its economic cooperation with Uganda in various fields.

Speaking in Iran-Uganda Business Forum held in the African state’s capital of Kampala, Zarif said, “We have held a special view of Africa since the victory of our Islamic Revolution in 1979, and Africa is one of our priorities for expansion of economic cooperation.”

During the Wednesday forum, which was also attended by Ugandan FM Sam Kutesa, the Iranian top diplomat also noted that relations between Tehran and Kampala are very strong and the Islamic Republic is interested in reinforcement of its cooperation with Uganda in various business fields.

“Heads of top Iranian business and commercial firms and representatives of major producers, industries, agriculture companies, research centres, banks, economic foundations, shipping lines, and car manufacturers are accompanying me in this trip,” Zarif noted, adding that members of his delegation are keen to cooperate with their Ugandan counterparts.
