French FM to Visit

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian is to visit Iran in the coming months as part of efforts to expand Paris-Tehran relations, the French Foreign Ministry announced.
In a statement on Wednesday, the ministry unveiled plans for an upcoming visit to Iran by Le Drian, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“Jean-Yves Le Drian, minister for Europe and foreign affairs, hosted [Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad] Javad Zarif in the context of France’s political dialogue with Iran on July 3, ahead of the Tehran visit by the [French Foreign Ministry’s] secretary-general. At Mr. Zarif’s invitation, the minister will visit Iran in the coming months to deepen our exchanges, as Laurent Fabius did in 2015 and Jean-Marc Ayrault in 2017,” the ministry said.
Zarif had traveled to Paris on June 29 on the final leg of a tour of Europe, which had taken him earlier to Italy and Germany.
During his two-day stay in Paris, Zarif held meetings with French President Emmanuel Macron and Le Drian.
On July 3, Secretary-General of France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development Christian Masset met Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Majid Takht-Ravanchi in Tehran for a third round of political negotiations.
