TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is scheduled to pay a visit to Belarus on Tuesday for diplomatic talks.
The Iranian minister will travel to Minsk after a one-day visit to the Republic of Azerbaijan.

According to Belarus’ Foreign Ministry, Zarif’s official visit will take place at the invitation of his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Makei.

Zarif and Makei will hold talks with the aim of coordinating the stances of Iran and Belarus in the international scene and expanding the bilateral relations, the Belarusian Foreign Ministry noted.
