Iranian Deputy FM in Moscow for Talks on Syria

Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs is scheduled to meet with his Russian counterpart Mikhail Bogdanov on Tuesday in Moscow to confer on various regional issues.

Hossein Jaberi Ansari, who left Tehran for Moscow on Monday afternoon, will hold a meeting with Bogdanov, the Russian President’s Special Envoy for the Middle East and Africa, to discuss the latest developments in Syria, particularly the events following the nationwide ceasefire, brokered by Russia and the US, that went into effect on Monday and is expected to hold for the next five days.

The two sides will also exchange views on other regional developments and issues of mutual interest, Mehr reported.

Iran and Russia, as two countries with a strategy for combating terrorism in Syria and settling the country’s issues through nationwide dialogue under the UN supervision, have been holding regular consultations for finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria.
