Russian FM to visit Iran next week for talks
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is expected to pay an official visit to Tehran next week to hold talks with senior Iranian officials on key issues.

“A visit to Iran by Foreign Minister of Russia Lavrov has been set for December 10-11,” Russian Interfax news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying on Friday.

The spokesperson added that the agenda for Lavrov’s trip “includes topics concerning bilateral relations, regional problems and steps to resolve issues related to [Iran’s] nuclear program in light of the agreements that were recently reached in Geneva.”

On November 24, Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council — the United States, Russia, France, China, and Britain — plus Germany sealed a six-month agreement in the Swiss city of Geneva to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program.

According to the agreement, in exchange for Tehran’s confidence-building measure to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, some of the existing sanctions against the Islamic Republic would be lifted.
