S. Korea Explores Enhancement of Ties

South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se met his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tehran on Saturday, as the two countries seek to bolster ties in the wake of Iran's nuclear deal.
Yun's visit to Tehran was the first by a South Korean foreign minister in 14 years and came about four months after Iran struck the landmark deal with P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) to limit its uranium enrichment program for about a decade in exchange for sanctions relief.
Yun and Zarif held talks on a wide range of issues, including progress on the deal's implementation, bilateral ties and the political situation in their respective regions.
The South Korean official was also expected to meet President Hassan Rouhani.
Seoul has shown renewed interest in business opportunities in oil-rich Iran, as the lifting of international sanctions will allow it to tap into the Middle Eastern country's energy sector.
