Kenya Seeks Expansion of Trade Ties with Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- Kenya's newly appointed Finance Minister Uhuru Kenyatta conferred with Iran's First Vice President Parviz Davoudi on expansion of trade ties and economic cooperation.



During the talks in Tehran, Kenyatta appealed to Iranian companies to assist Kenya in expanding its energy and infrastructure sectors.

According to Tehran Times, Kenyatta said areas such as building of power plants, assemblage of tractors and road construction would be of much help to Kenya.

Iran, which has well developed energy and infrastructure sectors - has been growing its ties with Kenya.

Davoudi expressed hope that bilateral relations between the two countries would increase to the advantage of both nations.

Kenyatta also held a separate meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, who said relations between Kenya and Iran are entering a new era.

Kenyatta who is also a deputy prime minister, was appointed to the new ministry last Friday during a cabinet reshuffle.

He had been the Minister for Trade, a position that went to former Finance Minister Amos Kimunya.

Kimunya had resigned as Finance Minister after the country's parliament passed a vote of no confidence in him over the sale of the Grand Regency Hotel.
