Iran is offering to help Guyana develop its agricultural, mining and industrial sectors.

Newly accredited Ambassador to Guyana Hojattolah Soltani has extended an invitation for a Guyana delegation comprising agricultural and industrial stakeholders to explore opportunities in his country as it seeks to deepen relations between the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country.

Soltani, who presented his letters of Credence to President Donald Ramotar, said Iran has profound expertise making reference to mining, agriculture and industry.

Iran had also offered support to Guyana in the mapping of mineral reserves after a visit to the Islamic State by former President Bharrat Jagdeo three years ago.

A government statement quoted the Iranian diplomat as saying that his country also welcomed “any initiative to support relations between the Parliaments of the two countries ...confident that such relations are hallmarks of bilateral relations.
