Zarif in Athens to Attend Ancient Civilizations Forum

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived in Athens on Sunday to attend the Ancient Civilizations Forum and hold talks with top Greek officials.

The senior Iranian diplomat joins representatives from nine other nations considered as descendants of the world's ancient civilizations, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Zarif was scheduled to deliver a speech at the two-day forum also attended by officials from Greece, China, India, Iraq, Egypt, Italy, Mexico, Peru and Bolivia. The conference is being held at Zappeio Hall in Athens. 

According to Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias, the purpose is to give the Ancient Civilizations Forum "an institutional character and open it up to more countries." "During his stay in the southeastern European country, the Iranian minister will hold meetings with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Foreign Minister Kotzias," Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said.

In February 2016, Iran and Greece signed a roadmap to forge closer ties during Tsipras' visit to Tehran at the head of a high-powered economic delegation.
