Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian will visit Moscow next week to meet his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

The visit was announced shortly after a phone call between the two countries' presidents.

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing that the two sides will continue to exchange views on several issues, including Iran nuclear deal known as the JCPOA.

“On January 17, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will hold talks with his Iranian counterpart, who will be in Moscow on this day on a working visit. During the talks, the sides are expected to continue an interested exchange of views on a number of topical international and regional topics, including the situation around the JCPOA on the Iranian nuclear deal, and interaction between the two countries at international platforms, including the UN, the SCO, the situation in Syria, Afghanistan, the Caucasus Region and the Caspian issue,” TASS quoted Zakharova as saying.

“There are plans to discuss the bilateral agenda, primarily its trade and economic component in the context of the implementation of key joint projects in energy, transport and other sectors, including taking into account the transition to the final phase of the negotiation process to conclude a full-fledged agreement on a free-trade zone between the EAEU and Iran,” she underlined.

Military ties have expanded between the two countries since the start of the Ukraine war, with Tehran supplying kamikaze drones to Moscow to use in its invasion.
