The three delegates from Iran, that includes, H.E. Ardeshir Noorian, leader of the meeting and Member of Parliament of the Islamic Republic of Iran, H.E. Morteza Mortazavi, Iran’s Ambassador to Uganda.

And Mr Asadollah Eshragh Jahromi, Assistant Director-General for Peace and Security in Iran’s Foreign Affairs Ministry are in Uganda to attend the 42nd Parliamentary Union of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (PUIC, OIC) Executive Meeting in Kampala.

H.E Ardeshir Noorian, leader of the meeting and Member of Parliament of the Islamic Republic of Iran, in his communication lauded Uganda particularly in the fight against human rights violations and terrorism.

“The role Uganda is playing is very important in fighting the double standards being exerted in fighting for human rights and against terrorism,” Noorian said.

However, Speaker Kadaga in her statement said that Yemen’s political unrests troubled Uganda a lot because Uganda is a peace-loving country. And as a country, a lot is being done to see that Yemen as a country gains stability.

“We are concerned about the disturbance in Yemen and how Uganda can help in discussing with the president and the Minister of Foreign Affairs to see the way forward,” Kadaga said.

Kadaga invited the delegation to Uganda because she wanted them to visit some of the exciting tourism sites, beautiful nature and enjoy good weather conditions that the Pearl of Africa has.
