12th Iran-South Africa joint commission session opens in Tehran

12th Iran-South Africa joint commission session opens in Tehran

Apart from South African Foreign Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, senior officials from several ministries of South Africa, as well as five MPs were also among the South African delegation. 

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told the inaugural ceremony that Iran and South Africa enjoy abundant capacities that could serve as a base for economic cooperation between the two countries. 

Zarif noted that expansion of ties with African countries, particularly South Africa, is high on the agenda of Islamic Republic of Iran. 

In the meantime, the South African foreign minister said that his country attaches special significance to enhanced political and economic relations with Tehran, underlining the need for strategic cooperation between Iran and South Africa. 

'We have never supported the sanctions on Iran and regard them as illogical and illegal,' Mashabane said. 

She touched upon deterioration of humanitarian situation in Yemen and said that South Africa condemns the aggression on Yemen and widespread destructions in the country and regards that these military attacks are not constructive and helpful. 

Referring to Iran's nuclear negotiations with the six world powers, Mashabane said that her country supports Iran nuclear talks. 
Foreign Ministry said that the 12th session of Iran-South Africa joint commission will work until Monday evening after signing a joint statement and holding a joint press conference of foreign ministers of the two countries.
