Kerman, Jan 3, IRNA – Some 15 Iranian ambassadors in the European, Asian and African states visited Sarcheshmeh Copper Complex in Kerman Province on Thursday.

Kerman Deputy Governor General for Economic Affairs Mohammad Ali Dehqan who has been accompanying the delegation said that this was an opportunity for the envoys to get acquainted with the province's tourism attractions and investment capacities before they leave for their workplaces in Belgium, Sweden, Pakistan, Germany, South Africa and other countries.
