TERHRAN, May 31 (MNA) -- Iranian First Vice President Parviz Davoudi and South African Ambassador Ebrahim M. Saley agreed that the two countries should expand their relations during a meeting in Tehran on Sunday.

South Africa plays a significant role in the entire African continent, and Iran attaches great importance to its relations with South Africa, Davoudi told the new South African ambassador to Tehran.

 

By utilizing their current potential, Tehran and Pretoria can strengthen their political, economic and cultural relations, he said, adding that the expansion of bilateral ties would benefit both nations.

 

He went on to say that Iranian and South African companies and investors can definitely cooperate more closely in industrial and infrastructure projects.

 

Ambassador Saley said the two countries should expand their ties since Tehran-Pretoria relations are unsatisfactory despite the current level of cooperation.
