Official: Iran to Hold 2 Permanent Exhibitions in Brazil
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iran-Brazil Friendship Society is planning to increase the mutual cooperation between Tehran and Brasilia through the two countries' private and state sectors, an Iranian official said, adding that Iran will set up two exhibitions in Brazil.
"The society plans to hold two permanent exhibitions of Iranian cultural and handicraft products in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro," Head of the Iran-Brazil Friendship Society Mirqassem Momeni announced on Wednesday.
He said products such as the Persian carpets which are very popular among the Brazilian people will go on display in the two expos.
Earlier this year, Brazil's Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Regina Maria Cordeiro Dunlop underlined her country's enthusiasm for the further expansion of relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran in all fields.
"Brazil is prepared to develop cooperation with Iran in different dimensions," Cordeiro Dunlop told FNA.
"The two countries' relations are improving everyday as we are two countries with abundant common interests," he added.
Iran has in recent years expanded friendly ties with Latin America, specially in economic, trade and industrial fields.
Since taking office in 2005, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has expanded Iran's cooperation with many Latin American states, including Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Cuba.
Iran's strong and rapidly growing ties with Latin America have raised eyebrows in the US and its western allies since Tehran and Latin nations have forged an alliance against the imperialist and colonialist powers and are striving hard to reinvigorate their relations with the other independent countries which pursue a line of policy independent from the US.
