TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Iranian parliamentary delegation, headed by Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, is scheduled to leave Tehran for Cuban capital of Havana Sunday.
The four-member delegation, headed by Alaeddin Boroujerdi is invited to Cuba by his Cuban counterpart, and is scheduled to arrive back to Tehran on Mar. 8.
It was earlier said that the delegation may also pay a visit to Mexico, as the second leg of its tour of Latin America but the visit has been canceled and the Iranian lawmakers may pay a visit to Venezuela, instead.
That is while the parliamentary delegation headed by Boroujerdi had lately left Tehran for Syria on Feb. 24 and held meetings with high-ranking Syrian officials.
In December, a senior Iranian lawmaker emphasized the necessity to enhance ties with parliaments of other countries, adding that the legislature has invited a number of parliamentary groups to pay a visit to Tehran.
“Parliamentary groups facilitate the promotion of Iran’s ties with different countries and they have a good effect on assisting the foreign ministry to promote relations,” Abbas Ali Mansouri Arani, member of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said at the time.
