Tehran, YJC. Senior diplomat says Iran’s Foreign Minister is to attend the African Unity summit.

Deputy Foreign Minister Morteza Sarmadi in answer to a reporter asking if the Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will attend the Munich and Addis Ababa meetings said "The trip to Munich is already on the agenda. He is likely also on a trip to attend the African Unity conference.”

In answer to a question concerning the objectives of the Turk prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s trip to Iran he said "Iran and Turkey’s mutual relations are very extensive to cover all political, economic, and regional aspects. No doubt Mr. Erdoğan’s trip will cover all these areas, especially keeping in mind that the Iran-Turkey relations are special.”

Asked how the Iran-Turkey relations would be regarding Syria after the Geneva2 conference, Sarmadi stated "The first serious meeting between the government and the opposition in the Geneva2 has not yet convened. The Geneva2 matter is still overshadowed by much disagreement and problems. The two countries and other regional countries will still have to hold negotiations to find a suitable solution to the Syrian problem.”
