Bilateral Relations

A number of bilateral measures have been undertaken by the two countries. Now Uganda enjoys cordial relations under the new leadership of H.E President Hassan Rouhani who assumed power in 2013 after the general elections

The State visits by President Museveni to Iran and the visit of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Uganda which followed that of his predecessors Dr. Mohammad Khatami and Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani have strengthened Bi-lateral relations and inspired confidence in the business community.

Those visits have not merely focused on political and diplomatic relations but have been translated into cooperation of the private sector in areas of Health, Agriculture, Education and Culture, Trade and Investment, Science and Technology

In February, the Iranian Foreign Minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday arrived in Uganda for a two-day official visit and met with President Yoweri Museveni on issues relating to foreign policy, extremism in the region and ways through which Iran can work with Uganda to harness power generation, education, trade and agriculture. Mr. Zarif traveled with a delegation of 40 people, including politicians and business moguls, who he said would be meeting with key Ugandan actors in various sector to explore ways of doing business in the Pearl of Africa as Uganda is commonly known.
