Croatia president to make state visit to Iran for talks

Politics - Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic plans to make an official visit to Iran to hold talks with senior officials on a range of issues.

Heading a high-ranking politico-economic delegation, the Croatian president will start her three-day visit to Tehran on Tuesday at the invitation of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Iranian president's deputy chief of staff for communications and information, Parviz Esmaeili, said on Monday.

He added that Rouhani will officially welcome Grabar-Kitarovic on Wednesday and the two presidents will then begin talks.

In the presence of the Iranian and Croatian presidents, senior officials of the two countries will sign several agreements and memoranda of understanding for bolstering cooperation, Esmaeili said.

Later in the day, the Iranian president and his Croatian counterpart will also attend a joint press conference, he noted.

The Iranian official said Grabar-Kitarovic will on Wednesday attend a meeting of Iranian and Croatian economic activists and representatives of private sectors and meet senior officials.

He added that the Croatian leader will wrap up her visit and leave Tehran on Thursday.

Grabar-Kitarovic's trip comes in a series of visits by world leaders to Tehran after the implementation of a nuclear agreement, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in July 2015.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, France, Britain, China and Russia – plus Germany started to implement the JCPOA on January 16.

After the JCPOA went into effect, all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran by the European Union, the Security Council and the US were lifted. Iran, in return, has put some limitations on its nuclear activities.

The nuclear agreement was signed on July 14, 2015 following two and a half years of intensive talks.
