Iran reliable partner in enhancing sustainable security in Africa: Deputy FM

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Ali Bagheri Kani has underscored that the Islamic Republic is a reliable partner for the African nations in terms of strengthening sustainable security.

Batheri Kani made the remarks in a meeting with Senegal's Minister of Foreign Affairs Madior Fall in the capital Dakar. The Iranian diplomat noted that the Islamic Republic pursues the strategy of maximizing interaction with African countries with the aim of developing sustainable security in the MENA region.

He also pointed to the Dakar International Forum on Peace and Security in Africa, saying that vigilance by African nations and governments will not allow the Western colonizers to continue looting the continent this time under the pretext of promoting development.

According to the Iranian diplomat, the root cause of insecurity in different regions of Africa and the source of terrorism in the continent are traced back to Western colonization.

The Senegalese foreign minister, for his part, lauded the Iranian official’s presence in the Dakar International Forum on Peace and Security in Africa, saying that Iran and Senegal enjoy strong bilateral relations and that the fifth joint economic commission of the two countries will be held in Dakar in the near future.
