Iran FM to Visit Russia’s Sochi on Wednesday

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will leave Tehran for the Russian city of Sochi on Wednesday morning at the head of a delegation, foreign ministry spokesman said.

In a Tuesday statement, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi declared that Zarif will hold talks with Russian officials during his visit to Sochi.

Iran and Russia have formed a strong alliance in recent years, with both supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s legitimate government against foreign-backed militancy.

Moreover, since coming into force in January 2016 of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a nuclear deal between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany), Tehran and Moscow have ramped up efforts to boost bilateral trade.
