Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday held talks with his North Korean counterpart Ri Yong-ho, who is on an official visit to Tehran.
During the meeting, the two sides expressed satisfaction with the level of bilateral ties between Tehran and Pyongyang, saying they welcome further expansion of relations.
The two top diplomats also conferred on the most important regional and international developments as well as other issues of mutual interest.
An informed source had earlier told the Fars News Agency that the North Korean diplomat “will only discuss bilateral relations between Tehran and Pyongyang” during the visit.
Both Iran and North Korea are under US sanctions, and are expected to share their experiences regarding their ties and negotiations with the US, particularly the Trump administration.
