Foreign ministers of Iran, Tanzania agree to hold joint committee session

Iran and Tanzania have agreed to hold a session of joint committee in the near future in line with efforts to boost Tehran's ties with African countries in various fields.

In a Friday phone conversation, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his Tanzanian counterpart January Yusuf Makamba discussed issues of common interest.

The top diplomats also exchanged views about ways to improve relations, particularly after a meeting between Iran's President Ebrahim Raeisi and his Tanzanian counterpart Samia Suluhu Hassan on the sidelines of the 15th meeting of the BRICS group of emerging economies in South Africa’s largest city of Johannesburg in August.

Pointing to historic ties between Iran and Tanzania and great diverse capacities of the two sides, Amir-Abdollahian voiced Tehran's readiness to boost cooperation with Dodoma, especially in economic, scientific and technological fields.

The top Iranian diplomat congratulated the Tanzanian government and Muslims on the birthday anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Makamba, for his part, said his country is keen to expand relations with Iran in different sectors.

He invited President Raeisi to Dodoma on behalf of the Tanzanian president.
