Ugandan FM urges enhanced relations with Iran

Tehran, Feb 23, IRNA – Ugandan Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa said on Saturday that his country is determined to widen relations with Iran, welcoming the contribution of Iranian companies.

Speaking at a meeting in Kampala with Iranian ambassador to Uganda Morteza Mortazavi, Kutesa said that Uganda is keen to attract investments from Iranian companies in the country.

He said that Uganda is an independent country and is not obliged to follow the unilateral approach of some countries which try to exert pressure on the country to keep it from cooperating with a certain country.

The Iranian ambassador, for his part, conveyed the message of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif who has asked his Ugandan counterpart to visit Iran. The invitation was welcomed by the Ugandan side.

Mortazavi underlined the need to remove the existing obstacles on the way of relations between the two nations, urging further efforts to implement the already signed agreements.
