Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will leave Tehran on Wednesday for a three-day tour to three Caucasian and central Asian states, Iranian president’s deputy chief of staff for communications and information, Parviz Esmaeili, said on Sunday, according to Iranian media reports.
Heading a high-ranking politico-economic delegation, Iranian Rouhani will visit Armenia and Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan to discuss ways of improving mutual relations, state TV reported.
The trip will take place at the invitation of Rouhani’s counterparts and in line with the Islamic republic’s policy to improve relations with neighboring and regional countries, said Esmaeili.
During his day-long visit to Armenia’s capital Yerevan on Wednesday, Rouhani will hold talks with Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan on the expansion of cooperation, Esmaeili said, adding that senior Iranian and Armenian officials will also sign several trade and economic cooperation documents.
Rouhani will then leave Yerevan to the Kazakh capital, Astana and Bishkek.
