Mottaki Due to Visit Germany

A022683210.jpgTEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki is slated to visit Germany to discuss key developments in the region particularly in the Caucasus, a ministry spokesman said on Monday.

“Manouchehr Mottaki’s visit is a continuation of his recent trips to Russia and Azerbaijan and is directed at holding consultation with his German counterpart on leading regional developments and helping establish peace and stability in the energy-rich Caucasus region,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hassan Qashqavi told reporters Monday.

The Iranian foreign minister paid separate visits to Moscow and Baku on Friday and Saturday and held talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and Azeri President Ilham Aliyev.

Aliyev has backed an Iranian proposal for regional countries to hold constructive dialogue on Caucasus issues, saying that productive talks will help the Caucasus region to achieve political stability without the help of foreign countries.

Qashqavi was quoted by press tv as saying that Iran and Germany would possibly exchange views on mutual relations. The visit will take place later Monday.

Meanwhile, the Armenian Foreign Minister, Edward Nalbandian, will arrive in Tehran Tuesday to discuss the Caucasus events with senior Iranian officials, he added.

The spokesman stressed that it is necessary for countries in the region to reach a common understanding based on dialogue to find appropriate solutions to regional issues.
