Iranian FM to pay official visit to Italy soon

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is slated to pay an official visit to Italy soon to discuss bilateral ties and regional developments.

“I will visit Italy very soon,” Zarif said in response to his Italian counterpart Federica Mogherini in a telephone conversation on Tuesday.

During the phone conversation, Zarif and Mogherini underlined the need for the further expansion of bilateral ties.

The Iranian and Italian foreign ministers also discussed the latest regional and international developments, specially Iraq’s developments.

Late in April, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and former Italian Ambassador to Tehran Luca Giansanti in a meeting explored avenues for the further development of bilateral ties between the two countries, specially in parliamentary fields.

During the meeting in Tehran, Larijani and Giansanti underlined the need for bolstering and reinvigorating mutual cooperation between Tehran and Rome.

The Iranian parliament speaker pointed to the good track record of close parliamentary relations between Iran and Italy, and said, “Expansion of parliamentary cooperation between Iran and Italy can leave positive effects on the two countries’ official relations.”
