The Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki says a new chapter has been opened in relations with Kenya in various fields.

“Iran and Kenya enjoy great potential for enhanced economic cooperation. Iranian companies have the capacity to carry out activities in Kenya in the sectors of energy, agriculture, dam building, water and construction of power plants,” Mottaki said in a meeting with his Kenyan counterpart, Hon Moses Wetangula, in Tehran.

He added that the opening of Iran’s trade center in Nairobi could play an important role in introducing the technical, engineering and trade capabilities of the Islamic Republic.

Wetangula said that Nairobi attaches importance to expanding ties with Tehran and expressed Kenya’s readiness to make use of Iran’s experience in the fields of energy, oil and auto manufacturing.

He called on Iran’s private sector to conduct economic activities in Kenya and hoped the fifth session of Iran-Kenya Joint Economic Commission would be held in Nairobi on schedule.

Wetangula extended an invitation to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on behalf of the president to pay an official visit to Nairobi
