TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif held talks with members of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) in Germany’s Munich about issues of mutual interest.
During the Saturday meeting on the sidelines of the 2020 Munich Security Conference, Zarif and the ECFR exchanged views about a range of issues, including ways to boost cooperation between the two sides.
In separate meetings on Friday, Zarif held talks with his counterparts from Canada, Finland, China, Croatia, and Oman.
Zarif also met with the representatives of The Elders, an international non-governmental organization that was founded by anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela.
The 56th Munich Security Conference (MSC) kicked off in the southern German city of Munich on Friday and will run through Sunday.
The annual conference, known as the “Davos” of global security and political events, has been an important forum for top officials to discuss major issues facing the world since its inception in 1963.
The theme this year is “Westlessness,” the loss of the common standing of what it means to be part of the West, according to a security report published on Monday.
