Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab-African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian left Tehran on Monday for a two-leg Gulf tour that will take him to Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
During his visit to Kuwait, Abdollahian will hold talks with senior officials on bilateral relations and regional and international developments, according to the official IRNA news agency.
He will also deliver an invitation from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to visit Iran.
The Iranian officials will also visit Abu Dhabi for talks with UAE officials.
Abdollahian's visit comes four months after Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif visited Kuwait and the UAE as part of Iranian efforts to reassure the Gulf countries following a November deal between Tehran and the West on its controversial nuclear program.Last Mod: 01 Nisan 2014, 09:34
