Ukraine’s FM in Tehran for Cooperation Talks
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin arrived in Iran's capital early on Sunday to hold talks with senior Iranian officials on promotion of mutual cooperation between the two countries.
The Ukrainian foreign minister has travelled to Tehran at the official invitation of his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.
During his two-day visit, he is scheduled to sit down with Zarif and other Iranian officials.
Ahead of Klimkin’s visit to Iran, the Ukrainian foreign ministry released a statement and said, “The aim of the visit is to discuss the state and prospects of the bilateral cooperation between Ukraine and Iran.”
“Among the other things, the parties will exchange the views on topical regional problems and modern challenges in the global dimension,” it added, Vestink Kafkaz reported.
International interest in ties with Iran has been growing since Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14, 2015 finalized a comprehensive nuclear deal and started implementing it on January 16.
The agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), terminated all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran.
