Iranian President Hassan Rouhani arrived in Bangkok on Sunday morning for an official visit that includes high-profile meetings with Thai officials and participation in the 2nd Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) Summit.

Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha received the Iranian president in a formal welcome ceremony, followed by a meeting of high-ranking delegations.

Heading a political and business team, the Iranian president embarked on a tour of Southeast Asia on Wednesday that took him earlier to Vietnam and Malaysia.

In Thailand, President Rouhani is going to deliver a speech at the ACD summit and meet foreign leaders on the sidelines of the conference.
