Austrian President Due in Iran on September 7: Report
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Heading a high-ranking delegation, Austrian President Heinz Fischer will pay a visit to Iran from September 7 to 9, Austrian daily Kurier reported.
The long-awaited trip will take place after Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) could finalize the text of final, comprehensive nuclear agreement over Tehran's nuclear energy program.
Austria had been playing host to many rounds of the diplomatic negotiations, including the final and most decisive round that resulted in a 159-page document on July 14.
Kurier quoted Austrian president’s office as announcing on Thursday that Mr. Fischer’s entourage in the upcoming visit will include deputy chancellor of Austria, ministers of economy, science and foreign affairs, head of Austrian’s chamber of commerce, as well as a delegation of senior economic, cultural, scientific and media figures.
Back on July 14, Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz had told Tasnim in Vienna that he will travel to Iran with President Fischer.
"Today is a historic day, and we are glad this agreement was achieved. I congratulate the Iranian people on this deal. I will travel to Iran along with Austrian president in September," Kurz had announced after the conclusion of talks between Iran and six world powers in Vienna.
