Iran to obtain wheat self-sufficiency in Sudan

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian Minister of Agriculture Mahmoud Hojjati and his Sudanese counterpart stressed obtaining wheat self-sufficiency through cross-border agriculture in Sudan, establishing meat exporting center and investment in Sudanese gold, iron and chrome mines.

“One of the issues that we are stressing on the new era is reaching an agreement on cross-border agriculture by Iran in Sudan. Iran is ready for any kind of cooperation with Sudan, especially on agriculture,” Hojjati said in a meeting with his Sudanese counterpart accompanied by a delegation.

Iran holds great potentials in different agricultural products, and has achieved considerable progress in using water and machinery, he said, adding the country is reaching self-sufficiency in producing meat, and is ready to work with Sudan on engineering new watering systems.
