Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi is slated to visit the Islamic Republic of Iran later this month to hold talks with senior Iranian officials on issues of mutual interest as well as regional and international developments, Press TV reported.

The press bureau of the Iranian Embassy in Beijing announced on Monday that Yang will arrive in Tehran for a two-day visit on December 7, IRNA reported.

It further noted that the Chinese state councilor's visit to Tehran comes at the invitation of the Iranian government.

Yang will be accompanied by a political, economic and security delegation during his visit to Tehran.

On October 29, Yang and Iran's Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani exchanged views on bilateral ties as well as regional and international issues of common concern in Beijing.
