Zarif Visiting North Africa

Zarif Visiting North Africa

The foreign minister on Monday started the third round of his regional trips following the recent nuclear agreement with major powers to visit North African countries. Mohammad Javad Zarif left Tehran for Tunisia as his first destination.
According to ISNA, Zarif was scheduled to meet his Tunisian counterpart Taieb Baccouche and other Tunisian officials to discuss bilateral relations as well as regional and international issues.  
Exploring avenues to promote mutual ties with North Africa and exchanging views on the latest regional and international developments such as the political process to settle the ongoing crises in Syria, Yemen and Libya are high on the agenda.
On the second leg of the tour, Zarif is scheduled to visit Algeria. The top diplomat will hold talks with high-ranking officials of the Arab country on the implications of the nuclear deal and outline Iran's policy to strengthen ties with regional countries.
On his previous regional trips, Zarif visited Arab countries, including Kuwait, Qatar, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria as well as other countries in the region such as Russia, India and Pakistan.
