The Indian FM also carries a written message from Indian PM Narendra Modi for Iranian President-elect Ebrahim Raeisi.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the General Director of Iranian Foreign Ministry’s West Asia Department Seyyed Rasoul Mousavi wrote: Indian FM @DrSJaishankar just arrived in Tehran. He will have very important meetings in his short visit. I am sure this visit will be the basic basis for Iran-India relations during the presidency of Ayatollah Raisi.”
Then, Jaishankar will leave for Moscow to attend a meeting of the Trade, Economic, Scientific, Technological and Cultural Cooperation Commission of the Russian and Indian Governments.
Earlier in September 2020, during a visit to Moscow, the Indian Foreign Minister arrived in Iran for a short visit and met with officials of the Islamic Republic.
The Indian official’s visit to Iran comes as an intra-Afghan talks meeting attended by representatives of the Afghan government and the Taliban high political delegation hosted by Iran was started on Wednesday.
