Former secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Hassan Rouhani left Tehran for Berlin Tuesday to confer with German officials about different issues, including Iran’s nuclear case. Rouhani is scheduled to attend a meeting with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Wednesday, an informed source in his office told FNA here on Monday.
The source also said that Rouhani, who used to serve as Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, is also due to address the European parliament in Brussels on Thursday.
During the visit, which will take place at the invitation of the German foundation ‘Courber’, Rouhani will confer with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, advisor to the German Chancellor, EU foreign policy Chief Javier Solana and chairman of the EU parliament about regional and international issues, including Iran’s nuclear case.
Rouhani – who is currently the head of the Expediency Council’s Center for Strategic Researches – will wrap up the visit and come back to Iran on Friday, the source said.
