Zarif in Moscow Zarif in Moscow

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday left Tehran for Moscow for political talks with Russian officials.
Zarif is accompanied by Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araqchi, IRNA reported. 
Russian Foreign Ministry’s Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova had earlier announced that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Iranian counterpart would hold talks in Moscow on Tuesday.
The main topic of discussions are reportedly implementation issues concerning the Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. 
Tehran has recently referred the case of European parties’ failure to meet their obligations under JCPOA to the deal’s Joint Commission for settlement through the deal’s Dispute Resolution Mechanism.
The two sides are also expected to discuss growing Tehran-Moscow ties and the Syrian peace process. 
Iran and Russia are key allies of the Syrian government in its fight against a lingering foreign-backed militancy.
