Tehran : Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a meeting with Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Amolo Odinga stressed Iran’s policy for the further expansion of ties between the two, and said Tehran and Nairobi are eager to boost mutual cooperation in all fields. The two countries, specially under the current conditions of the global developments, seek growing expansion of all-out cooperation in the interest of the two nations and independent states,” Ahmadinejad said here in Tehran on Monday.
He also described the relations between the two countries as brotherly, and said, “Iran and Kenya are in the same front and the two nations’ cultures and views have tied them to each other.” Noting that Tehran and Nairobi enjoy abundant capabilities and potentials for promoting the level of their bilateral and regional cooperation, he reiterated, “Iran and Kenya should activate their potentials for cooperation in economic, political and cultural fields to take effective steps in consolidating their bilateral ties.” Iran has in the past few years shown increasing willingness to expand ties and cooperation with the Africa states and offered to transfer experience and technology to several African countries.
Since taking office in 2005, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has striven hard to maximize Tehran’s relations with the African continent. Ahmadinejad paid a visit to Kenya in early 2009, during which he said that the bilateral ties between Iran and Kenya are improving in various political, cultural and economic arenas, and that the two countries are willing to strengthen and deepen these relations in all the different sectors.
Meanwhile earlier President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Friday that a new Middle East is being created which would be free of the United States and Israel(Israel and Kenya is a long time allies and friends). Massive crowds of Iranians, waving flags and chanting “Death to America!” descended on Tehran’s Azadi Square (Freedom Square) to listen to the hard-liner and Holocaust denier who lashed out at the West and Israel in a speech marking the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic revolution.”We will soon see a new Middle East materialising without America and the Zionist regime and there will be no room for world arrogance (the West) in it,” Ahmadinejad told the cheering crowds who gathered despite the cold and cloudy weather.
