Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi here on Sunday voiced Iran’s readiness to help Zimbabwe promote its defense strength.
Vahidi made the remark during his first round of talks with the visiting Zimbabwean counterpart Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa.
Condemning the unjust sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe, the Iranian minister hoped the country would restore its economic strength.
Six different joint commissions have been set up between Tehran and Harare, he said, stressing that such moves prove that the two nations enjoy amicable relations in all areas.
For his part, the Zimbabwean minister praised great achievements made by the Iranian nation and hailed Iran’s strong will to defend its national interests and independence.
He also called for promotion of all-out cooperation between the two countries.
Zimbabwe’s Mnangagwa arrived in Tehran late Saturday.
