TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani plans to travel to Japan on Monday to hold talks with senior officials of the East Asian country on a range of issues, including ways to boost parliamentary ties between Tehran and Tokyo.
Heading a high-ranking delegation, Larijani will leave Tehran for Japan on Monday at the official invitation of the speaker of the Japanese parliament.
Iran and Japan have ramped up efforts in recent years to boost bilateral relations in diverse political and economic fields.
Back in May, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono reiterated his country’s support for the 2015 nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers, saying it is important that Iran and other parties maintain the deal.
