TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, held talks in Moscow about issues of mutual interest.
During the Monday meeting, Zarif and Lavrov exchanged views about ways to promote bilateral relations between the Islamic Republic and the Russian Federation.
The two top diplomats also discussed the latest developments in the region and the world as well as the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi said Zarif would travel to Moscow as part of the “constant consultations” between Iran and top Russian officials.
The spokesman further noted that the top Iranian diplomat has also been invited to participate in an extraordinary meeting of the United Nations marking the 75th anniversary of foundation of the international organization.
If granted visa, Zarif will attend the upcoming event in New York, to be held by the UN Security Council for talks on the UN Charter, Mousavi added.
The spokesperson described the UN meeting as a perfect opportunity for debates about the US government’s acts of unilateralism and the need for multilateralism, which has been enshrined in the UN Charter.
