Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin will visit Tehran soon, a spokesman for the Iranian parliament told Sputnik.
Earlier, a source familiar with the situation told Sputnik that Volodin plans to pay an official visit to Iran in January to hold a meeting with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.  
“There is a program for the upcoming visit by Russian parliament speaker Vyacheslav Volodin to Iran in the near future, but the exact date has not yet been determined,” the spokesman said.
Earlier on Monday, the ruling United Russia party said that its faction leader in the State Duma, Vladimir Vasilyev, and Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian discussed the situation in the middle East region, as well as issues of mutual cooperation at the parliamentary level.
“Volodin will go to Iran in January, where he will meet with the [Iranian] president,” the source said.
Vasilyev’s meeting with Amir-Abdollahian in Tehran was in preparation for Volodin’s visit, the source noted.
