Brazil, Bolivia keen to strengthen ties with Iran – political news
In a congratulatory message to Amirabdollahian on Tuesday, Brazilian Foreign Minister Carlos Alberto Franco Franca expressed hope for a strengthening of centuries-old relations with Iran as part of mutual efforts.
He added that Brazil and Iran are able to give new impetus to their mutual cooperation and trade relations, such as in the agricultural sector.
In another message, Bolivia’s Foreign Minister Rogelio Mayta Mayta wished Amirabdollahian every success in his post.
He also expressed the will of the Bolivian government to expand cooperation and friendship with Iran in order to ensure the continued economic and social development of the two nations and to pave the way for scientific and technological achievements.
In a telephone conversation with his Nicaraguan counterpart at the end of August, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi stressed that the Iranian government’s foreign policy favors the expansion of ties with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Earlier last month, Raisi held a meeting with the secretary general of ALBA – an intergovernmental alliance of Latin American and Caribbean states – in Tehran, assessing plans to promote cooperation and protect independent nations against the United States and other arrogant powers.
