President of the Islamic Republic of Iran,
Your Excellency and Dear Brother,
On behalf of the Government and People of the United Republic of Tanzania and indeed on my own behalf, I would like to take this opportunity to extend to Your Excellency and through you, to the Government and People of the Islamic Republic of Iran our profound congratulations and best wishes on this historic occasion of celebrating the 36th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution of Iran.
The People of Tanzania and Iran enjoy cordial relations cemented by historic and cultural bonds dating back long ago. These relations provide a strong foundation for fraternal relations between our two countries that have been nurtured and developed by successive leadership in our two countries. In that regard, Tanzania and Iran maintain close cooperation in a number of important areas such as health and education. We wish to consolidate further and expand these relations to include other sectors such as transport, trade, investments, technology, oil, gas and communication.
I would like to assure you of my personal commitment as well as that of my Government to continue working closely with your Government at bilateral and international levels. It is my sincere hope that our traditional cooperation through NAM and the UN aimed at enhancing peace and security as a basis for socio-economic development not only in our countries but also at global level.
While wishing you continued personal good health, happiness and prosperity for the people of Iran, please accept, Your Excellency the assurances of my highest consideration”.
