Iran–Uruguay relations are foreign relations between Iran and Uruguay. Iran has an embassy in Montevideo.[1] Uruguay has an embassy in Tehran,[2] the ambassador being also concurrent to Pakistan.

Iran is an important trading partner for Uruguay, with important sales of rice, wool, and soybeans.[3] The current Uruguayan government is increasing its relationship with Iran;[4] in early 2011, Ivonne Passada, Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies of Uruguay, made an official visit to Iran,[5] followed afterwards by Foreign Minister Luis Almagro.[6] In early 2012, Ali Asghar Khaji, Iranian Vicechancellor for Latin America, made himself an official visit to Uruguay.[7]

Both countries are members of the Group of 77.[8]
