New Zealand’s Foreign Minister Murray McCully will be in Tehran this weekend to step up relations with Iran. He is scheduled to meet with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif who visited New Zealand earlier this year, as well as other Iranian ministers, the local newspaper National Business Review reported. “Our discussions will cover a range of Middle East regional security issues and trade and economic relations between our two countries,” he was quoted as saying. McCully says will sign an Agricultural Cooperation Arrangement with Iran that will support exchanges between farmers and producers. He will also announce the reinstatement of formal talks between Iran and New Zealand–known as the Political and Economic Cooperation Commission.
