Iranian and Uruguayan Business Sectors Strengthen Ties in Montevideo

MONTEVIDEO – More than one hundred Iranian and Uruguayan businesspeople met in Montevideo on Wednesday to strengthen ties between the two countries, in a summit headed by their respective foreign ministers.

During the event, Uruguay’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Rodolfo Nin Novoa told journalists that “there are interesting trade possibilities” between the two countries.

“Uruguayan exports to Iran amount to less than $10 million, while Uruguayan imports from Iran totaled around $6.5 million,” he said.

Iran is an “important purchaser of agricultural products” from Uruguay, Nin Novoa said.

He pointed out, however, that there are some “sanitary problems that must be worked out by both agriculture ministries” and that trade between the two countries “has shown an irregular behavior during the last few years.”

Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said that rice imported from the South American country was the “most well-known Uruguayan product in Iran.”

“Distance has never been an obstacle to establishing bilateral relations. From the political and commercial point of view, Iran and Uruguay have always been very collaborative,” Zarif said.

The Iranian official also pointed out that Uruguay’s location was one of the things that most interested his government as well as the group of businesspeople accompanying him.

“Uruguay’s geographical location is very important as it provides access to the region’s markets and many ports,” he said.

After the conference, Nin Novoa escorted Zarif to the presidential palace for a brief meeting with President Tabare Vazquez.
