Syrian Prime Minister Hussein Arnous will begin an official three-day visit to Tehran to discuss ways to promote economic cooperation with Iran.
Heading a high-ranking delegation, Arnous will arrive in the Iranian capital on Friday evening at the invitation of Iran's First Vice-President Mohammad Mokhber, who will officially welcome the Syrian prime minister on Saturday.
Mohammad Jamshidi, the Iranian president's deputy chief of staff for political affairs, said Arnous plans to take part in the 15th meeting of the High Committee of Iran-Syria Economic Cooperation. He would also hold talks with President Ebrahim Raeisi, Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Ali Akbar Ahmadian.
In line with the implementation of agreements inked during President Raeisi’s visit to Damascus in May and the topics agreed upon, the Iranian and Syrian authorities would sign documents for the enhancement of relations of cooperation, Jamshidi said.
On May 3, Raeisi and his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad signed an agreement on “long-term strategic comprehensive cooperation” between the two countries.
