The Iranian Foreign Minister, in continuation of his meetings with the political and economic officials of the Republic of Mali, on Tuesday met with the president of the transitional government, Assimi Goita to discuss bilateral relations and international matters.
In the meeting, Hossein Amirabdollahian elaborated on the agreements reached for the development of economic and commercial cooperation with Mali within the framework of the Joint Commission for Comprehensive Cooperation.
He stressed the determination of the Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s administration to expand cooperation with the Malian government, especially in “economic-commercial, defense and science-technology fields”.
He also emphasized that the Iranian nation, despite enduring cruel and extensive sanctions, managed to defend its political independence and successfully continue its scientific and socio-economic progress.
During the meeting, Colonel Assimi Goita for his part, welcomed the agreements reached between the two countries to strengthen their cooperation.
He said the achievements by the Iranian nation in confronting the oppressive sanctions and gaining the important political and economic position by the Iranian nation in the regional and global arena are role models for the Malian nation to fight against the excessive demands often made by some foreign governments.
The Head of Mali’s transitional government then took the opportunity to reaffirm Bamako’s readiness to host Iranian industries that will boost economic activists.
