Deputy FM Meets African Leaders

Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian conferred with some African heads of state on the fringes of the African Union summit, which was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Friday and Saturday.     
In his meeting with Gabonese President Ali Bongo on Sunday, the two officials reviewed the moves which led to a slump in oil prices on world markets and stressed the necessity to make efforts to reverse the declining trend, IRNA reported.
In a separate development, the deputy foreign minister met with Ghanaian President John Mahama, in which the African leader called for Iran's active involvement in medical and agricultural sectors in the West African country and said, "Great capacities exist for further expansion of cooperation between the two countries."   
Amir Abdollahian expressed gratitude to the Ghanaian official for his efforts to help strengthen bilateral relations and stressed Iran's resolve to promote ties with the African state in all fields.
The deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs also met with Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, in which the veteran African official highlighted the common stance of the two countries on regional and international developments and described the strong relationship between Tehran and Harare as an appropriate model for other countries.
The senior diplomat praised the independent position of the African state against the unreasonable demands of western countries and called for continued bilateral cooperation at regional and international levels. Elsewhere, in a meeting with President of Madagascar Hery Rajaonarimampianina, Amir Abdollahian expressed hope that the volume of bilateral trade and cooperation would promote on a par with the capacities in the two countries.
