Zarif, Lavrov Discuss Ties, Region

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, held a phone conversation on issues of regional and international significance.
During the phone call on Thursday, the two top diplomats exchanged views on latest regional and international developments, Press TV reported.
The Russian Foreign Ministry also said in a statement earlier in the day that Zarif and Lavrov held talks on efforts to end the deadly crisis plaguing Syria.
"Topical issues on the bilateral and regional agenda, including the issue of external support for Syrian settlement, were discussed," the statement said.
Zarif-Lavrov talks came days after President Hassan Rouhani and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, sat down for talks on the sidelines of a trilateral summit in the Azeri capital Baku.
The two presidents stressed the importance of accelerating the development of bilateral relations in all fields.
In another development on Thursday, Russian media reported that Deputy Foreign Ministers Sergei Ryabkov and Mikhail Bogdanov will pay a visit to Tehran later this month to hold talks with high-ranking Iranian officials about bilateral ties and the regional situation.
Bogdanov's visit is slated for August 15 with the situation in the Middle East, especially Syria, on the agenda, Russia's RIA Novosti news agency reported.
Ryabkov is also slated to visit the Islamic Republic in late August to discuss the implementation of last year's nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
On January 16, Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council—the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia— plus Germany started implementing the JCPOA they had clinched on July 14, 2015.
Under the agreement, all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran by the European Union, the UN Security Council and the US were lifted. Iran has, in return, put some limitations on its nuclear activities.
