Zarif: Iran will forever be reliable partner of African nations

Tehran, May 25, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message congratulated Africa Day, saying Iran will forever be a partner of all African nations.

"Iran has always been—and will forever be—a reliable partner of all fraternal African nations," he added.

"Amid #COVID19 ready to share our experience and expertise to help save lives," he noted.

Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a phone conversation with his South African counterpart Cyril Ramaphosa, referred to South Africa as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, saying we expect the country to underscore its opposition against the US unilateralism and illegal sanctions imposed against Iran for the UN and the international community.
