Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said Parliament is ready to help facilitate and accelerate cooperation between Iranian and Ghanaian governments and private sectors.

The top lawmaker made the remark in a meeting with Ghanaian Foreign Minister Hanna Tetteh in Tehran on Tuesday, ICANA reported.

Larijani pointed to the growing cooperation between the two governments and parliaments and said the ground is prepared for development of relations, an opportunity which should be used to the benefit of the two peoples.   

"Economic and business sectors are among the most important areas for collaboration," Larijani said. "The Islamic Republic of Iran has achieved great experience in many fields, including dam construction, power generation and intensive agriculture and is able to transfer it to Ghana, in exchange for tapping into Ghana's economic and business capacities."

The speaker expressed hope that agreements signed between the two countries would be implemented in the light of the new era of bilateral relations and constructive dialogue between officials.  

The Ghanaian minister pointed to enormous potential for improving ties, stressing that the government and parliament of the West African country welcome greater cooperation.  

"Ghana has proven capabilities in exporting gold, coffee, crops and construction materials," she said. "In view of plans for cooperation between the private sectors and implementation of mutual agreements, these capabilities can be utilized to help promote relations."   

Tetteh said Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama plans to visit Iran in the coming months, hoping the trip will help strengthen the "friendly" relations.
