TIN news:   The Speaker of the Hungarian National Assembly Laszlo Kover and Russia's Federation Council Chairperson Valentina Ivanovna Matvienko will pay separate visits to Tehran to hold talks with senior Iranian officials.
Heading a parliamentary delegation, Kover will visit Iran next week for talks with senior officials. The senior Hungarian lawmaker is scheduled to travel to Tehran on Wednesday at the invitation of Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, Tasnim News Agency reported.
During their five-day stay in Iran, the Hungarian legislators will meet top Iranian officials, including President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
In November 2015, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban paid a visit to Iran, leading a group of 120 economic activists, businessmen and officials from the European country’s banks.
The two countries inked eight documents on cooperation in various areas during the visit, which marked the first trip by a Hungarian prime minister to the Islamic Republic in 27 years.
Matvienko will also pay a visit to Tehran.
She will arrive in Tehran on November 13 for a two-day trip at the invitation of Larijani.
She is scheduled to hold talks with the Iranian Parliament speaker, president and foreign minister about mutual relations.
Matvienko’s trip to Tehran will come as part of a series of visits between Iran and Russia following the implementation of last year’s nuclear agreement between Tehran and the P5+1 group of countries.
Trade between the two countries during the first half of 2016 stood at 1.8 billion dollars, almost 70 percent up from the same period last year.
