Iran starts searching for its place in post-war South Caucasus from Baku
President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has received Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif.
A meeting between Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Baramov and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is being held in Baku, according to the Azerbaijani Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Twitter post.
Zarif arrived in Baku late on January 24 as part of a regional tour that will also take him to Armenia, Russia and Turkey.
Zarif and the accompanying delegation were welcomed in Baku's Heydar Aliyev International Airport by a number of Azerbaijan political officials and Iran's Ambassador to Azerbaijan Abbas Mousavi.
He is slated to hold talks on new opportunities for cooperation in the region after the liberation of the country's lands in Karabakh including Iranian companies' involvement in Karabakh reconstruction.
Trilateral cooperation between Iran, Azerbaijan, and Russia in order to complete the North-South international corridor and use the capacities of this transit route as much as possible is another issue to be discussed during the meetings between Zarif and Azerbaijani officials.
