French FM to Visit Iran in March: Source

Jean-Yves Le Drian

A source close to the Iranian embassy in France says that French Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian will travel to Tehran on March 5.

The source has told the IRIB New Agency in Paris that Le Drian will hold talks with Iranian officials and also make arrangements for French President Emmanuel Macron’s visit to Iran.

The French minister of foreign affairs was scheduled to travel to Tehran in the first week of January, but his trip was cancelled after a phone conversation between President Hassan Rouhani and Macron amid the recent riots across Iran.

France says during this visit, Le Drian wants to discuss Iran’s defence capabilities and also the presence of Iran in the region. However, Iran’s foreign ministry officials have announced that the talks would revolve around the nuclear deal.
