Iran, Japan Study Ways to Develop Mutual Cooperation


The meeting was held between Director General of the Iranian Foreign Ministry for Expatriates' Affairs Seyed Kazzem Sajjadi and the JICA's director-general for the Middle-East and European affairs in the Japanese capital on Tuesday.
"The JICA is ready to expand its cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran in different fields, including natural disasters management, environment protection and assistance in Afghanistan's reconstruction," the Japanese official said.
He also expressed the hope that Iran and Japan would further develop their relations in all fields in the near future.
The Iranian and Japanese officials in 2011 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further increase cooperation between Tehran and the JICA.
The MoU was endorsed during a visit by former Iranian Vice-President for Management and Human Resources Development Lotfollah Forouzandeh to Tokyo.
The MoU compiled in five paragraphs stressed the importance of the training courses held by the JICA in Iran and the necessity for the Iranian trainees to make an optimized use of such courses based on their needs and capabilities.
Established as an independent administrative institution under the law concerning the Independent Administrative Institution, Japan International Cooperation Agency aims to contribute to the promotion of international cooperation as well as the sound development of Japanese and global economy by supporting the socioeconomic development, recovery or economic stability of developing regions.
The JICA in 2007 started the implementation of a project in Iran on the Establishment of Emergency Response Plan for the first 72 Hours after an Earthquake in the Islamic Republic of Iran to enhance emergency response capacity for the priority activities for the first 72 hours after the earthquake.
The Japan International Cooperation Agency, commonly known as the JICA, is an independent government agency which coordinates official development assistance for the government of Japan. It is chartered with assisting economic and social growth in developing countries, and the promotion of international cooperation.
