Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met a number of his foreign counterparts and top officials on the sidelines of the 53rd edition of the Munich Security Conference (MSC) in Germany.
Heading a high-ranking delegation, Zarif arrived in the capital of the southern German state of Bavaria on Friday to take part in the MSC.
On Friday evening, the senior Iranian diplomat held meetings with Oman’s Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, Foreign Minister of Russia Sergei Lavrov, and Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.
The top Iranian diplomat is scheduled to deliver a speech at the Munich Security Conference on Sunday morning.
More than 500 participants have taken part in the event.
Since its foundation five decades ago, the MSC has become a leading international platform for dialogue on foreign and security policy.
In addition to its annual flagship conference, the MSC regularly convenes high-profile events on particular topics and regions and publishes the Munich Security Report.
