“Iran is ready to transfer its experience in all fields, including the fields of healthcare, energy, road building and urbanization, to Somalia,” Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with Somalia’s Ambassador to Iran Khalif Kadieh Musa in Tehran on Wednesday.
He also underlined that despite the pressures by the arrogant powers, Iran supports progress of justice-seeking independent states.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s administration has striven hard to maximize relations with the African continent.
Iran is also an observing member of the AU and has shown an active presence in previous AU summit meetings.
The country is considered as one of the AU’s strategic partners along with India, Japan, China, several South American states and Turkey, while Tehran is also believed to be prioritizing promotion of its economic and political ties with the African states.
