Schroder to visit Tehran this week

Tehran, Jan 10, IRNA – Gerhard Schroder, ex-German Chancellor, is to meet with Iran’s Minister of Science, Research and Technology Mohammad Farhadi this week on Tuesday.

Deputy minister of technology told IRNA here on Sunday that the meeting is to focus on exchange of knowledge-based economy between Tehran and Berlin.

Hossein Salar Amoli said the two are also to discuss science and diplomacy as well as technological issues.

Schroder has been Chancellor of Germany from 1998 to 2005.

Following the July 14 nuclear agreement between Iran and the six world powers including Germany, Vice Chancellor of Germany Sigmar Gabriel and Foreign Minister of that country Frank-Walter Steinmeier travelled to Iran.

After the agreement, better known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), foreign delegations have flown to Tehran to revive relations with Iran.
