Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bahram Qassemi says France’s Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian will arrive in Tehran on March 4.
“Le Drian will meet and negotiate with the foreign minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran as well as other senior officials of our country on Monday,” added Qassemi.
He noted that the two sides would discuss the ways to expand bilateral relations and exchange views on the most important regional and international issues.
Le Drian is expected to reassure Tehran about Paris’s full commitment to the nuclear deal signed between the P5+1 and the Iranian side.
The deal has been called into question by US President Donald Trump, who has refused to certify it, but the other five parties who signed the deal with Iran are keen to keep it.
