Lavrov to Visit


Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will pay an official visit to Tehran at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, the spokesman of Iran’s Foreign Ministry announced.  
Saeed Khatibzadeh also told reporters on Thursday that Lavrov’s visit is scheduled to take place on April 13 within the framework of “political consultations between Iranian and Russian foreign ministers”, Press TV reported. 
“Consultations on various aspects of bilateral relations; regional issues, especially the latest developments in Caucasus, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan; as well as Iran-Russia cooperation in major regional and international organizations” are on Lavrov’s agenda during his visit to Tehran, Khatibzadeh said.
The spokesman noted that Lavrov will also discuss other important matters, including the landmark nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and ways of counteracting US unilateralism and illegal sanctions with Iranian officials.
Lavrov’s visit comes after Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement in late January that Moscow is ready to cement its “beneficial” cooperation with Tehran.
