Zimbabwe calls for boosting economic ties with Iran

Zimbabwean Minister of Small to Medium Enterprises and Cooperative Development Sithembiso Nyoni in a meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Zimbabwe Ahmad Erfanian in Harare voiced her country's willingness to broaden economic relations with Iran.

Tehran and Harare enjoy very good relations and mutual cooperation has become closer after Zimbabwe's independence in 1980 and the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979, she said, according to Fars News Agency.

She reiterated that Zimbabwe has signed a number of deals on banking cooperation with Iran which can increase trade between the two countries.

The Iranian ambassador, for his part, recalled that three top Zimbabwean officials have visited Iran in the past three months.

He underlined that Tehran and Harare could benefit from the sound atmosphere created following the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as well as the grounds created after the removal of economic sanctions to expand and deepen their economic and political relations.

The ambassador also called for benefiting from the capacities of the two countries' private sectors in boosting economic exchanges.

In relevant remarks in mid-November 2016, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Zimbabwean Deputy Foreign Minister Joey Bimha in a meeting in Tehran underlined the need for broadening of mutual cooperation.

During the meeting, Zarif and Bimha explored avenues for bolstering bilateral ties in different areas.

The Iranian foreign minister hoped that Iran and Zimbabwe will make use of their capabilities to deepen mutual cooperation.

Zarif lauded Zimbabwe's anti-colonial policies, and said, "Iran is ready to share its experiences with the Zimbabweans."

The Zimbabwean deputy foreign minister, for his part, said that his country attaches importance to the expansion of cooperation with Iran and benefit from Iran's experiences and capabilities in various fields.

The two sides also exchanged views on various political and economic issues mainly in the field of agriculture.

Iran has sought to maximize relations with the African continent. The country has an observer status in the African Union and has actively participated in earlier AU summits.

The country is considered as one of the AU's strategic partners along with India, Japan, China, several South American states and Turkey, while Tehran is also believed to be prioritizing the promotion of economic and political ties with African states.
