More meetings on Zarif’s Paris menu

Paris, June 21, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has a series of more meetings on his itinerary while in France.

He participated in a meeting with the French journalists and the country’s Iran analysts on Tuesday evening and discussed with them, for one hour, international and regional developments, including the issue of Iran.

But the Iranian foreign minister cancelled his interview with France 24 news network and postponed it to a more appropriate time in the future due to his busy schedule.

Zarif is expected to attend a fast-breaking (Iftar) ceremony in the residence of Iranian ambassador where some French officials and ambassadors from Islamic countries will be present.

During his stay, he is to hold talks with his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault.

He is also scheduled to meet French President Francois Hollande.
Zarif arrived in Paris on Tuesday for a two-day visit.

Separate meetings with French senate and national assembly top officials and the country’s minister of economy, finances and industry are also on his Paris agenda.
