Iran’s Zarif to meet former EU foreign policy chief

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is scheduled to hold talks with former European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana.

Zarif, who is on a trip to New York to attend the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly, will hold talks with Solana on Saturday.

The Iranian Foreign Minister is also slated to meet with UN-Arab League Special Representative on Syria Lakhdar Brahimi to discuss issues related to the ongoing Syrian crisis.

Zarif said on Friday that he is scheduled to sit down for talks with around a dozen foreign ministers a day while in the US.

“I will meet with Ms. Ashton and the foreign ministers of Greece, the Netherlands, Australia, Italy, Britain, Switzerland, Japan, Turkey, Oman, Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia and Bulgaria on Monday,” Zarif said on Friday.

The top diplomat expressed hope that his bilateral meetings would lead to achievements for the Iranian nation.

The Iranian Foreign Minister will also meet with the former Secretary-General of the United Nations and UN-Arab League envoy for Syria, Kofi Annan, on Saturday.
