FM Stresses Iran-Kenya Cooperation Development

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, in a meeting with visiting Kenyan Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Trade Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday, said that the two countries had started a new round of cooperation.

Referring to increasing bilateral cooperation, Mottaki expressed that in view of the determination of high ranking officials, the two sides have entered into a new round of cooperation by making use of each other capabilities.

"To promote mutual cooperation, the two sides should spare no efforts to remove existing software barriers and provide suitable grounds and required facilities to this end," Mottaki pointed out, the Islamic republic news agency reported.

To attain the goal, the two sides should approve agreement on avoiding double taxation, expand customs cooperation, to promote trade exchanges and cooperation between organizations in the two countries, the Iranian foreign minister added.

The Kenyan envoy, for his part, welcomed the expansion of all-out relations with Iran.

Kenyatta reiterated that his country, as a prominent African country, could be regarded as a good market for Iranian products and their re-export to African countries.

Elsewhere, Mottaki reminded the crimes and atrocities of the Zionist regime in Gaza and stressed that the international community should take an explicit stance in dealing with the inhuman crimes of Zionists occupiers in Gaza.
