Japan's Foreign Minister to visit Iran

Tehran (ISNA) - Japan's Foreign Minister Motegi Toshimitsu plans to visit Iran as early as mid-August to meet senior officials of the country's new government.

According to NHK, Motegi will likely visit Iran after Ebrahim Raisi takes over as president from the incumbent, Hassan Rouhani, in early August.

In meetings with Iran's new foreign minister and other figures in Raisi's government, Motegi is expected to urge them to play a constructive role in the effort to ease tensions and bring stability to the Middle East.

He is also expected to convey Japan's willingness to strengthen its traditional friendship with Iran.

Motegi and Iranian officials will likely discuss issues around the 2015 nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
