Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian is set to visit Beijing on Friday at the invitation of his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi. 
The two diplomats will discuss a range of topics, including the 25-year cooperation agreement signed by the two countries, according to Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh, ISNA reported. 
China and Iran signed in March 2021 a “comprehensive strategic partnership” agreement to boost economic and political relations.
In a tweet, Iran’s Ambassador in Chine Mohammad Keshavarzzadeh also highlighted regular meetings between the Iranian and Chinese foreign ministers over the past years, including Wang’s visit to Tehran last year to sign the partnership document. 
“In Amir-Abdollahian’s visit to China this week, various issues will be discussed which are of great significant under current circumstances,” he said. 
The Chinese top diplomat has invited Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu to visit on Wednesday as well, according to Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin. 
Amir-Abdollahian’s trip also comes prior to visits by foreign ministers from several other Middle Eastern states which are expected to “deepen relations between the two sides.”
The meetings running through Friday will include the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain, along with the secretary general of the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council.
