On the sideline of this visit to the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Park in Mashhad, Mr. Mahmoud Mohammad, the Asia-Pacific Director-General of Mali's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that Mali was developing in multiple dimensions; however, this country required assistance in numerous fields and the Mali's government intended to expand its relations with other countries, including Iran.
He also mentioned that Mali had been interacting with many countries, including the United States, Japan, and Iran, and in various fields, including energy, banking, and economy, hence he stated that Mali demands new levels of cooperation and transactions with other countries in various different fields such as medicine and agriculture, and Iran, as a country well-equipped with modern technology, and enjoyed a special status in this area.
"Relation and cooperation with Iran have begun in previous years and hopefully the level of this cooperation between the two sides will also increase," said the Asia-Pacific Director-General of Mali's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"Some technologies are very expensive in Mali and entail higher costs; hence, these interactions with Iran could have a great influence on reducing the cost of technologies which includes manufacturing audio and video products and game-making videos, as well as producing and exporting content and cloud services (data storage),” added Mahmoud Mohammad.
He also referred to his meetings with the managers of different organizations and companies associated with medical treatment, medicine, and chambers of commerce: "On my return to Mali, I will impart the great news about Iran's industrial developments and progress to my people since in our ongoing interactions on these multiple fields, we have exchanged valuable ideas and information, and have reviewed the potentials for future cooperation.”
The Asia-Pacific Director-General of Mali's Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that Mali and Iran could cooperate extensively and in many different fields including agriculture, economy, chemical products, computer and information technology, and Mali, by emphasizing scientific diplomacies, can send its students to Iran with the aim of expanding cooperation in other fields.
