During his one-day visit, Le Drian is going to pave the way for upcoming visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to Iran, France 24 said.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Monday clarified that the French president’s trip will take place as planned but that no date has yet been scheduled for it.
Bahram Qassemi dismissed reports that “conditions” have been set in order for the trip to take place.
"There are no conditions in exchanges of visits and relations by delegations. The two countries enjoy positive relations, there is much interaction between Tehran and Paris, which will continue," Qassemi added.
According to the Foreign Ministry, while Iran and France see eye-to-eye on many issues, there are obviously matters on which they disagree.
