TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Heading a parliamentary delegation, Speaker of the National Assembly of Hungary László Kövér will visit Iran next week for talks with senior officials.

The senior Hungarian lawmaker is scheduled to travel to Tehran on Wednesday, November 9, at the invitation of Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani.

During their 5-day stay in Iran, the Hungarian legislators will meet top Iranian officials, including President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

In November 2015, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban paid a visit to Iran, leading a group of 120 economic activists, businessmen and officials from the European country’s banks.

The two countries inked eight documents on cooperation in various areas during the visit, which marked the first trip by a Hungarian prime minister to the Islamic Republic in 27 years.
