Expressing his satisfaction with the development of relations between Iran and Nigeria, especially in the economic and trade fields over the past two years, the senior Iranian diplomat called for further strengthening the interactions between the two countries.
The Islamic Republic of Iran does not limit the path of development of relations with Nigeria, Amir-Abdollahian stressed, describing the holding of the Iran-Nigeria Joint Economic Commission session as important.
Bringing warm greetings from President Ebrahim Raieis to his Nigerian counterpart Mohammadu Buhari, Amir-Abdollahian also officially invited the President of Nigeria to visit Tehran.
Dada, for his part, expressed the hope that the implementation of the agreements reached at the joint meeting will significantly contribute to strengthening trade ties between the two countries.
He also announced his country’s willingness to strengthen cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
“Through proper planning, there are many opportunities to develop bilateral relations between the two countries,” the Nigerian minister added.
Zubairu Dada, who is heading to Tehran at the head of a Nigerian delegation, also met with other Iranian officials, including Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagheri Ghalibaf and Iranian First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber.
