Sudanese Envoy Calls for Expansion of Ties with Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Sudanese Ambassador to Tehran Mir-Ghani Ababakr al-Tayeb Bakhit underlined his country's enthusiasm for the development of all-out relations with Iran, specially in the auto industry.
He made the remarks while paying a visit to Iran's Saipa Diesel Company in Tehran on Monday.
"Sudan is eager to exchange experiences with Iran in the field of auto industry," the Sudanese envoy said.
A-Tayeb Bakhit described his visit to Saipa Company as an opportunity to become familiar with the latest achievements in Iran's auto industry.
He pointed to Sudan as a gate of Africa, and said his country can be a good market for Iranian products.
Iran has long sought to boost bilateral ties and mutual cooperation with the African countries in a bid to help them with development.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's administration has striven hard to maximize relations with the African continent.
Iran is also an observing member of the AU and has shown an active presence in previous AU summit meetings.
The country is considered as one of the AU's strategic partners along with India, Japan, China, several South American states and Turkey, while Tehran is also believed to be prioritizing promotion of its economic and political ties with the African states.
