The fourth round of political talks between Iran and France were to be held in Paris on Wednesday. The two sides’ delegations were headed by Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi and Secretary-General of France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, Tasnim News Agency reported. The talks are held within the framework of a memorandum of understanding signed by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during his 2016 visit to France.  The negotiations, held alternately in Tehran and Paris every six months, are supposed to be a mechanism within which the two countries can develop bilateral relations in political, economic and cultural spheres. Discussions on regional and international issues, especially developments in the Persian Gulf and the Middle East, were on the agenda of this round of talks. In his two-day trip to Paris, Araqchi is to meet French officials and deliver a lecture at the French Institute of International Relations.
