Iran and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) signed a document to promote their cooperation.
The cooperation agreement was signed during a ceremony between Iranian Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh and Secretary General of UNCTAD Mukhisa Kituyi in Nairobi, Kenya, on Friday.
The Iranian minister also held meetings with his Kenyan counterpart as well as minister of transportation, infrastructures, and urban development.
During the meetings, the two sides explored ways to boost mutual cooperation between Tehran and Nairobi.
Nematzadeh is in Kenya to take part in the fourteenth session of the UNCTAD scheduled to be held on July 17-22 in the East African country.
The event will bring together heads of state and government, ministers and other prominent players from the business world, civil society and academia to tackle global trade and economic development issues.
