Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani and Nigerian head of parliamentary agricultural committee Mohammad Taher Mongono met in Tehran on Monday.
Speaking in the meeting Larijani said "As one of the important African countries, Nigeria enjoys unique features and potentials especially in agriculture, which must be tapped into in order to further expand mutual relations.”
Pointing to Iran’s progress in the mechanization of agricultural production, the Majlis speaker added "The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to convey its experiences in the production of agricultural and animal husbandry products to Nigeria and to engage in bilateral cooperation.”
He also pointed to recent terrorist attacks in Nigeria and said "Terrorism is an international problem which has unfortunately grown in size due to contributive actions by the US and some Western countries as a result of a tactical approach to it.”
"On the other hand, we always believe that such an unwelcome phenomenon has to be fought decisively.”
