Jan 13, 2007 (TEHRAN) — Iran has invited Sudan to boost military cooperation between the two countries, saying that such cooperation among Islamic countries could lead to the progress and development of Islamic countries.

During a meeting held Saturday in Tehran with the visiting Sudanese Defence minister, the Iranian Defence minister expressed the readiness to share its military experience and abilities with the Sudan. The minister urged to promote military cooperation between the two countries as a mean to consolidate the Islamic World.

“Tehran is prepared to share its defence experiences and capabilities with all Muslim states,” Iranian Defence Minister Mustafa Mohammad-Najjar told his Sudanese counterpart Abdelrahim Mohamed Hussein here on Saturday, the Iranian Mehr News Agency reported.

Mohammad-Najjar said unity is the main vehicle for the development of the Islamic world. The minister highlighted the need to promote defence relations between Tehran and Khartoum.

“As one of Iran’s old friends, Sudan has a special place in the Islamic Republic’s foreign and defence policies,” he noted.

“Iran’s strategic situation in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf and Sudan’s situation in Africa and the Red Sea greatly impacts developments in these two regions,” the Iranian defence official commented.

He announced that Iran is prepared to participate in reconstruction projects in south and west Sudan.

The Sudanese minister also called for the promotion of ties between the two countries in all areas, especially in defence field.

Hussein said, “The United States is hindering the Islamic world’s development through different tactics.”

He added that Iranian people have absolute right to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Unity of Shiites and Sunnis is very essential to foil plots against Islamic world, he added.
