Iran hopes for better ties with Senegal during President Sall’s term

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Ramin Mehmanparast on Tuesday welcomed Senegal’s presidential election and expressed hope that the relations between the two countries would improve during the new president’s term in office.

Senegal’s Macky Sall won his West African country’s presidential election with 65.80 percent of the vote, Reuters reported on Tuesday.

Mehmanparast said, “We welcome the fact that the Senegalese people participated in determining their country’s destiny and elected their president in a free atmosphere.”

“We hope that Senegal’s new president, who has been elected with people’s votes, follow a path which would lead to the fulfillment of the country’s interests in the best way,” he added.

Mehmanparast also said, “We hope that the new election in Syria will help improve relations between Tehran and Dakar.”

On February 23, 2011, Senegal severed diplomatic relations with Iran, accusing it of delivering weapons to separatist rebels in its restive southern Casamance region.
