Zarif to Visit West Africa

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will start a tour of West African nations on Sunday as part of regular diplomatic travels. In his six-day tour, Zarif is scheduled to visit Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea-Conakry and Mali, Tasnim News Agency reported. Back in February 2015, the top Iranian diplomat took another tour of Africa, and travelled to Kenya, Uganda, Burundi and Tanzania at the head of a high-ranking political and economic delegation. Expansion of relations with African countries in all political, economic and cultural fields has been a matter of prime importance in Iran’s foreign policy agenda. President Hassan Rouhani, who took office in August 2013, has repeatedly stressed his government’s interest in boosting relations with African nations.
