Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has departed Tehran for Cyprus to hold talks with Cypriot officials on bilateral ties as well as the recent regional and international developments.


Heading a politico-economic delegation, Salehi left Tehran on Tuesday.

The top Iranian diplomat will meet with Cypriot President Demetris Christofias and Finance Minister Vassos Shiarly during his one-day visit to the eastern Mediterranean country.

Cyprus will assume the 6-month presidency of the European Union from Denmark on July 1.

The Iranian foreign minister will also extend Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s invitation to the Cypriot leader to take part in the next Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran.

NAM, an international organization with 120 member states and 17 observer countries, is considered as not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc.
