Iran 4th Kiwi Producer in World
TEHRAN (FNA)- The cultivation area for kiwi in Iran is 12,400 hectares with an annual output of over 362,000 tons which make the country the 4th producer of the fruit in the world, Deputy Minister of Agriculture Mohammad Ali Tahmasebi announced on Tuesday.

Tahmasebi said today that last local calendar year (March 21, 2018-March 20, 2019), the export of about 140,000 tons of kiwi, generated over $97 million forex revenues for the country.

He noted that Iran is ranked four in the world with a cultivated area of ​12,400 hectares and a production of over 362,000 tons of kiwi.

Operators and organizations need to form a production-to-market chain, use a conventional farming system and create a specialized fund, in order to maintain the optimal production and meet domestic demand, as well as plan to maintain kiwi export markets, he stated.

Deputy Minister of Agriculture went on to say that with the pursuit of the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad, kiwi exporters can benefit from banking facilities at the rate of 14.5 percent of the Keshavarzi Bank.

Iran has expedited efforts to reduce dependency on food imports over the past years amid rounds of American sanctions that could have had an impact on food security in the country.

The agriculture sector has experienced a significant growth as official reports suggest there is sufficient production to meet domestic demand while authorities are seeking to find new markets for farming products that are on oversupply.

Late in August, Head of Mechanization Department at Iran’s Ministry of Agriculture Kambiz Abbasi said that output in the farming sector had significantly improved over the past years mainly due to the modernization of the equipment used in the sector.

Abbasi described as “unprecedented” the size of the investment dedicated to mechanized agriculture since 2013, when the current administrative government took office for a first time.

He said a main part of the investment had gone to modern seed drills and harvesting machines, leading to lower wastage in the farms.

Report: Saudi Shooter Called US 'Nation of Evil' Before Attacking Pensacola Naval Base
TEHRAN (FNA)- US-based non-governmental analytical company SITE Intelligence Group alleged in a report on Friday that the shooter, earlier identified as Mohammad al-Shamrani, had posted a short anti-American manifesto on social media before the rampage at the US military installation.

The authenticity of the manifesto has yet to be verified, Sputnik reported.

SITE Intelligence Group found similarities in the posted manifesto with some quotes by former al-Qaeda Leader Osama Bin Laden, who was killed in 2011 during a special US raid Abbottabad, Pakistan.


Earlier on Friday, Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud called US President Donald Trump and extended his condolences.

"The King said that the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people," Trump noted.

The Saudi king has as well directed security services to cooperate with US counterparts in investigating the shooting.

The Royal Family of Saudi Arabia along with senior officials from the Kingdom also expressed their condolences to the American people and relatives of the victims that were killed in Pensacola.

On Friday, al-Shamrani killed three people at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida before being fatally shot in an exchange of fire with police. At least seven more were injured, including two police officers.

The incident came just two days after another deadly shooting at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Hawaii, where a gunman, identified as a US sailor, killed two civilian workers and wounded another before taking his own life.


Report: China, Iraq, UAE Top Trade Partners of Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- A new report shows that China, Iraq, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been respectively the top three destinations for Iran’s exported goods in the first 7 months of the current local calendar year (March 21- October 22), which means the Europeans have failed to establish proportionate trade ties with Tehran despite their claims.

Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture has released the statistics for the first seven months of the current Iranian year of 1398 (from March 21, 2019, until 22 October 2019), suggesting that 58% of the Iranian exports were to China, Iraq, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

It is also noteworthy that Turkey and Afghanistan were the fourth and fifth destinations for Iranian goods during that period, accounting for 14% of the total exports.
