Iran, Zimbabwe to lift visa requirements
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has officially opened the 2010 Zimbabwe International Trade Fair in the second-largest Zimbabwean city of Bulawayo.
The multi-sector and multi-national trade exhibition was opened on Friday in the presence of President Ahmadinejad and his Zimbabwean counterpart Robert Mugabe.
On Thursday, senior Iranian and Zimbabwean authorities signed 11 memoranda of understanding on tourism, education, transportation, technology and removing bureaucratic restrictions, such as visa requirements.
Tehran and Harare also agreed to form joint ventures in the scientific, agricultural and technical sectors.
Ahmadinejad has left Zimbabwe for Uganda later on Friday.
