Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif is going to begin an Asian tour this week that will take him to Bangladesh and Indonesia.
The top Iranian diplomat will be visiting Bangladesh and Indonesia only a week after a major tour of Asia with trips to China, Japan and Malaysia.
In addition to high-profile meetings in Bangladesh, Zarif is scheduled to deliver a speech to the 3rd Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) Blue Economy Ministerial Conference (BEC-III) in Dhaka.
The Iranian minister will then fly to Indonesia to hold talks with the Muslim nation’s officials on Tehran-Jakarta ties, the regional and international issues, and the latest developments in the Islamic world.
Zarif has made several foreign trips in recent weeks, after being blacklisted by the US government.
