Iran’s foreign minister will join his counterparts from Russia and Syria on Friday for a trilateral meeting due to be held in the Russian capital, an Iranian spokesman said.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi confirmed on Tuesday that Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will leave Tehran for Moscow on Friday to take part in a trilateral meeting with Russia’s Sergey Lavrov and Syria’s Walid Muallem.
Earlier on Tuesday, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova had declared that at the end of the week three-way talks are planned in Moscow between the Foreign Ministers of Russia, Syria and Iran.
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov had hosted his Iranian and Syrian counterparts in Moscow late October 2016 to confer on ways to intensify anti-terrorism efforts in the Arab country.
The meeting seems to be in response to the US President Donald Trump’s military order against the Damascus government.
