Iran also expressed its readiness to participate in the African countries and cooperate in the field of implementation of water and soil projects.

Iran’s capital Tehran hosted economy ministers from more than 40 African countries at the second Iran-Africa International Summit during April 26-29.

The opening ceremony of the event was attended by senior Iranian officials including President Ebrahim Raisi and Minister of Industry, Mining and Trade Abbas Aliabadi.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, President Raisi voiced Iran's readiness to further boost it economic relations with African countries.

"This meeting is a symbol of the will of African countries and Iran to expand economic relations," he said.

Referring to the difference in Iran's view of Africa compared to Western countries, he said, "Cooperation with Africa was emphasized by Imam Khomeini and also emphasized by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution. Westerners want Africa for themselves, but we want Africa for itself."

The history of Africa shows how many Western countries have plundered Africa's resources, Raisi noted.
