Leader of Islamic Ummah Imam Khamenei receives South Africa president
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has met with South African President Jacob Zuma, who is on a groundbreaking state visit to Tehran.
The meeting on Sunday was also attended by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
Heading a 180-member politico-economic delegation, Zuma arrived in Tehran on Sunday at the invitation of President Rouhani to discuss ways to strengthen relations between the two countries.
At a joint press conference earlier in the day, Iranian and South African presidents called for the strengthening of “intelligence and political” cooperation in a genuine campaign against the serious threats of violence and terrorism.
Meantime, Iran’s Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) and South Africa’s national oil company PetroSA signed a memorandum for cooperation.
