Vice President Chiwenga told reporters after the meeting that Zimbabwe is following up on the implementation of the 12 agreements signed when President Raisi visited the southern African country last year.

“First of all, we congratulate President Raisi for hosting the Iran-Africa International Economic Conference, which will mutually benefit the parties involved,” said Vice President Chiwenga.
