Iran’s Zarif to visit Istanbul on Sunday

MNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will visit Turkey on Sunday to hold a series of high-level political talks.

Zarif will hold a meeting with his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, in Istanbul for talks on the bilateral relations as well as the latest regional and international developments.

Meanwhile, Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and defense minister, Sergey Shoygu, will visit Turkey later today.
