TEHRAN (FNA)- Tehran and Khartoum inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on production of livestock vaccine by Iran in Sudan, an Iranian official announced on Tuesday.
"Based on a trilateral MoU signed by Razi Vaccine and Serum Production Research Institute of Iran, Sudanese Ministry of Animal and Resources and Sudan's Ministry of Science and Technology, a complex will soon be built in the African country to produce farm animals' vaccines, including ophthous fever," Head of Razi Institute Abdulhossein Dalimi told FNA.
Dalimi reiterated that the complex will be built in Suba district in a technology park in southern Sudan on a 60% Iranian and 40% Sudanese investment.
Noting that the technological know-how for synthesizing different kinds of vaccine in Iran has experienced ample progress during recent years, he stressed that the country is considered as one of the important exporters of the know-how and attaches much importance to the transfer of the technological know-how to the Muslim and African states.
Dalimi also announced that Sudanese Minister of Animal and Resources Mohamed Ahmed al-Tahir Abu Kalabish is due to travel to Iran in spring to sign the deal for the production of farm animal vaccine in his country.
