    French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault will arrive in Tehran with a delegation next week, Iranian Ambassador to France Ali Ahani has announced.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The visit will coincide with a session of the Iran-France joint economic commission, Ahani said on Thursday, as cited by the IRNA news agency.
