Islamic Republic, Roaming in Africa

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on October 30, 2010

Iranian Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani said that Iran’s policy towards establishing relations with African countries is strategic, local satellite Press TV reported on Friday.

Larijani lauded the progress achieved in ties between Iran and Africa, adding “the Islamic Republic’s strategy toward African countries is to help them develop and progress and do away with the remaining impacts of colonialism.”

He called for a joint investment plan to boost cooperation between the two countries in different sectors, including energy, mining and pharmaceutical venues, according to Press TV.

For his part, the Kenyan speaker hailed his country’s ties with the Islamic Republic and expressed Nairobi’s willingness to expand mutual cooperation with Tehran in a variety of areas, including technology and industry, according to the report.

Kenneth Marende praised Iran’s technological and industrial advances, which he said would help Kenya on its path to progress.

On Thursday, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, who was visiting Burkina Faso, said in Ouagadougou that the Islamic Republic has placed a high premium on ties with Africa as part of its foreign policy approach, according to Press TV.

Mottaki also called for the activation of joint trade and economic commissions and expansion of cooperation on a variety of areas such as trade, agriculture, mining, energy, culture and science between the two nations, said the report.

Guess what?! Kenya also is pursuing the Nuclear Electricity Project, a plan to make Kenya an atomic power producer. The main problem we may face is in mining activities which may goes toward mining Uranium Ore and extracting the fissile materials from it, the same procedure Iran use currently also to make Yellowcake. Ambiguity is not just about Iran- Kenya relationship only; there are more Iranian partners in Africa which can access the Uranium Ore.

When Saddam Hossein was pursing nuclear capabilities, he’d tried to buy uranium Yellowcake from Africa (Niger).
