Azeri parliament speaker due in Iran soon

Tasnim – Speaker of the National Assembly of the Azerbaijan Republic Ogtay Asadov plans to pay an official visit to Iran in the near future in a bid to boost Tehran-Baku relations in all spheres.

Heading a high-ranking parliamentary delegation, Asadov is slated to pay the visit to the Islamic Republic at the official invitation of Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani.

During his two-day visit, the Azeri parliament speaker will hold talks with Larijani and President Hassan Rouhani and some other Iranian officials.
