Iran's President to visit Russia early 2022
Iranian President Sayyid Ebrahim Raisi will pay an official visit to Russia in the coming days.
Iranian Government spokesman Ali Bahadori Jahromi said on Tuesday that President Ebrahim Raisi would travel to Russia early in 2022.
The trip is in line with the Islamic Republic of Iran's strategic interactions with Russia, the spokesman said in a press conference, adding that President Raisi has been invited by Russian President Vladimir Putin to pay a visit to the country.
He said that the trip was intended to serve Iran's policy of strengthening and expanding bilateral and multilateral ties with the countries in the region.
Jahromi added that First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber was finalizing the trip. Jahromi said the deputy head of the president’s office for political affairs is making arrangements for the trip.
Russian President Vladimir Putin had already invited his Iranian counterpart to visit Moscow in 2022.
The upcoming presidential visit is expected to result in a number of major agreements and contracts and focus on talks about the revival of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as well as expansion of economic and trade ties between Tehran and Moscow.
