Iranian president promises Zimbabwe a tractor factory

President Mnangagwa (R) told his Iranian counterpart their countries were both victims of Western sanctions

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi has promised to set up a tractor factory in Zimbabwe during his visit to the southern African country.

Diplomatic ties between the two countries have been forged through economic adversity – highlighted by Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who bemoaned the impact of sanctions.

“We victims of Western sanctions are talking to each other,” he said after 12 agreements were signed during the state visit by his Iranian counterpart.

“The authors of sanctions won’t want us to talk to each other but because we are both victims, it is important that we show them that we are united.

And I am happy that we share this view with my dear brother.”
