Ukrainian FM Due in Tehran for Strengthening Ties

Pavlo Klimkin, the Foreign Minister of Ukraine, will arrive in Tehran on Sunday May 29 for a two-day visit packed with various meetings with Iranian officials related to boosting bilateral relations and discussing regional issues.

The senior Ukrainian diplomat is making the visit to Tehran at the official invitation of Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, in a bid to confer on the present and future state of the two countries’ relations.

During the visit, the two sides will engage in discussions about regional issues and the modern global challenges, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The Ministry went on to add that the lifting of economic and financial sanctions against Iran has created opportunities for the two countries to better realize potential capacities for cooperation.

The statement highlighted Iran as one of Ukraine’s major partners in the region, while noting the various areas for trade and economic cooperation for deepening bilateral ties.

In a meeting with Ukrainian Ambassador to Tehran Sergei Buldiliak in late February, Zarif expressed his hope to see a rising trend in the visits of European and world delegations to Tehran following the implementation of the nuclear deal.

Buldiliak noted that Ukraine could expand cooperation with Iran in the energy, ship-building, aircraft, and machinery manufacturing industries.
