Kazakhstan president in Tehran in latest visit of leaders to Iran

Kazakhstan's President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, at the head of a high-ranking delegation, has arrived in the Iranian capital of Tehran to hold talks with his counterpart President Ebrahim Raeisi on the expansion of bilateral ties.

Tokayev’s plane landed at Tehran's Mehrabad Airport on Sunday and senior Iranian officials warmly received the Kazak president upon arrival.

Tokayev, who came to Iran at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart, was later welcomed by Raeisi at Saad Abad palace in Tehran, with reports saying high-level bilateral meetings are to be held during the visit and a number of inter-governmental documents will be signed.

Kazakhstan, a major oil and uranium producer, is part of the China-led eight-member bloc, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which also includes Iran, Russia, India, and Pakistan.

Last year, during a meeting between Raeisi and his Kazakh counterpart on the sidelines of a SCO summit in Tajikistan, the two sides agreed to strengthen bilateral relations, including cooperation to better facilitate rail freight transport which would speed up the transit of goods between the two nations.
