Iranian president commends Museveni for standing firm against Homosexuality


Dr. Syed Ebrahim Raisi the president of the Islamic Republic of Iran has commended President Museveni for standing firm against noting that it’s not only against the culture and family values but also the human race.

“Iran is ready to walk with Uganda in this fight” Dr. Raisi highlighted.

The Iranian President who is in the country for a two-day state visit also thanked President Museveni for the warm welcome to Uganda on their mission to further expand their bilateral relations with friendly and aligned African countries in economic diplomacy and political relations.

“Iran is ready to share experiences with Uganda in areas such as Energy, Oil, and Technology” he added.

Dr. Raisi further hailed President Museveni for championing peace and stability on the African continent by getting involved in the fight against terrorism and extremism and other forms of human rights violations.

In his remarks, President Museveni appreciated the Islamic Republic of Iran for motivating him to develop Uganda’s oil resources, especially constructing an oil refinery in Uganda.

“We have some little oil here which we discovered a few years ago. I had some people discouraging us not to build an oil refinery saying it’s not profitable,” H.E Museveni said, wondering why many countries continue to have refineries if they were not profitable!

“When I visited Iran, I was informed that the Islamic country had nine oil refineries and was in the advanced stages of constructing more. So, when I came back, I put my foot down and constructed an oil refinery and develop a petrochemical industry. So, you can see the areas of complementarity and I would urge the ministers to take this matter seriously,” H.E Museveni explained.

At this event, the two countries Uganda and Iran signed five memoranda of understanding (MoUs) on Agriculture, Foreign Affairs, and on the establishment of a Joint Permanent Commission.

H.E Ebrahim Rais becomes the 3rd President of Iran to visit Uganda following H.E Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who was here in April 2010. and President H.E. Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani who visited Uganda in 1996.

This ceremony was attended by high-ranking delegations of both countries that included Ministers and service chiefs.
On Thursday, HE Sayyid Ebrahim Raisi will also address a business forum at AL-Mustafa University in Kyengera.
