TEHRAN, Feb. 13 (Press Shia) – Luxembourg’s Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn heading a high-ranking political delegation arrived in Tehran Sunday night for a 2-day visit.

Foreign Minister of Luxembourg Jean Asselborn has led a high-ranking political delegation to Tehran at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.

During his two-day stay in Tehran, Asselborn is scheduled to hold talks with Zarif, President Hassan Rouhani, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Head of Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani.

A number of economic cooperation documents in support of mutual investment will also be signed between the two countries.
