TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -
A delegation from our country’s Central Bank is going to visit Kenya for talks with officials of central bank of this country,” he told reporters in an Iftar ceremony in Iranian embassy in Kenya.
He also expressed hope that Kenyan upcoming presidential election would be held peacefully.
"Bilateral ties between the two sides will be growing and definitely in line with interests of the two sides regardless of what the results of the election will be,” he added.
Last September, Iran and Kenya emphasized their determination to enhance bilateral cooperation in different areas, economy in particular.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani met with Justin Muturi, Kenya’s National Assembly Speaker, in Tehran, where the two sides discussed ways to promote their relations in September.
During the talks, Rouhani said forging closer ties with Kenya is among the priorities in Iran’s foreign policy agenda, adding that the two sides should seize the opportunity created by the removal of anti-Tehran sanctions to broaden their cooperation.
"Kenya is among the Islamic Republic’s friends in Africa,” said Rouhani, adding that the "post-JCPOA climate and the lifting of sanctions have set the stage for the further expansion of cooperation between the two countries.”
