President Raeisi arrives in Zimbabwe on last leg of Africa tour

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi arrives in Harare, Zimbabwe, on July 13, 2013.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi has arrived in Zimbabwe on the last leg of his three-nation tour of Africa.

Raeisi was officially welcomed by his Zimbabwean counterpart, Emmerson Mnangagwa, upon arrival at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport in Harare on Thursday.

Raeisi and Mnangagwa are expected to hold a closed-door meeting later in the day. The Iranian and Zimbabwean delegations are expected to exchange views on the expansion of bilateral relations.

Carrying the photos of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and top Iranian anti-terror icon General Qassem Soleimani, the Zimbabwean people gathered at the Harare airport to greet Raeisi upon his arrival, according to reports.

The Iranian chief executive has already visited Kenya and Uganda as part of his Africa tour.

In Kenya, Raeisi held talks with his Kenyan counterpart, William Ruto, and oversaw the signing of five memoranda of understanding (MoUs). He also visited Iran’s Innovation and Technology House in Nairobi and met with Iranian and Kenyan businessmen and economic activists.

In Uganda, four MoUs were signed in the presence of Raeisi and Ugandan President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
