Date of visit still to be agreed
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif may visit Moscow, the date of the visit is still being agreed. The Islamic republic’s embassy in Russia told TASS.
“Such a visit is being considered. The date of the visit has not been agreed yet”, – the agency’s interlocutor said in response to a related question.
Such a visit was expected to take place in November, with Zarif scheduled to hold talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. However, it was postponed. The Iranian Foreign Ministry said at the time that the postponement of Zarif’s visit to Russia was linked to the Iranian government’s extraordinary programme to hold budget meetings, in which the presence of all ministers was mandatory.
