Iranian Speaker Warns of World PowersaACAO Hegemonic Plots against Africa.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in a meeting with Speaker of the National Assembly of Niger Hama Amadou warned of the hegemonic powers' plots to plunder the wealth and resources of the African countries.

"The hegemonic powers intend to plunder the resources of the African countries and nations," Larijani said during the meeting held on the sidelines of a Meeting of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Tehran on Tuesday night. Stressing that the Islamic Republic of Iran is eager to help the economic and social progress of African states, he announced the Iranian private and governmental companies' readiness to export technical and engineering services to them. Amadou, for his part, underlined that the presence of high-ranking parliamentary delegations in Tehran shows Iran's key role and position in the Muslim world. He also said that the people and government of Niger attach much importance to the expansion of close cooperation with Tehran. Tehran has prioritized promotion of its economic and political ties with the African states and the country is now considered as one of the African Union's strategic partners. Tehran's efforts to boost ties and cooperation with Africa have led to its acceptance as an observing member of the African Union, where it has shown an active presence in the AU summit meetings.
