Raisi to visit three Latin American nations next week
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi is heading to Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba to strengthen cooperation and bilateral ties.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi is set to visit three Latin American nations next week to boost political, economic, and innovative relations.
Raisi will leave for Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba on Sunday at the head of a high-ranking delegation, in line with his administration's policy of expanding ties with friendly countries.
Several documents will be signed between Iran and the three states during the Latin American tour, with an aim to strengthen cooperation in various fields. The president is also set to sit down with Iranian and local tradesmen, and economic actors.
It is worth highlighting that Iran has close ties with several Latin American countries and seeks to deepen its relations with those nations.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made an official visit in February to both Venezuela and Nicaragua. Iran and Venezuela both signed a 20-year partnership agreement in June to bolster bilateral cooperation in various fields during Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's visit to Tehran.
The partnership agreement includes cooperation in science, technology, agriculture, oil and gas, petrochemicals, tourism, and culture.
Iran has visited several nations in the recent period, aiming to strengthen bilateral ties and boost cooperation. On the same note, Iran enjoyed a recent rapprochement with both Saudi Arabia and Egypt after a period of strained ties.
After being invited to the BRICS summit, Iran's Foreign Minister told his South African counterpart that Tehran wishes to expand ties with South Africa in a recent meeting in Cape Town earlier this month.
