By Temkin Jafarov, Saeed Isayev - Trend:

Foreign affairs minister of Belgium, Didier Reynders will visit Iran today, and meet his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif on February 23, Iranian ISNA news agency reported.

Reynders is visiting Iran upon the invitation of Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Both high-ranking officials will reportedly discuss issues of mutual interest, and hold a press conference as well.

Besides Zarif, Reynders is scheduled to meet other Iranian officials, to talk over the bilateral issues between the two countries, as well as international issues.

While in Iran, Reynders will reportedly also discuss the latest developments of Iran's negotiations with the P5+1 group about the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.

Iran and the P5+1 reached a nuclear agreement on Nov. 24. Iran has agreed to curb some of its nuclear activities for six months in return for sanctions relief.

The U.S. and its Western allies suspect Iran of developing a nuclear weapon - something that Iran denies. The Islamic Republic has on numerous occasions stated that it does not seek to develop nuclear weapons, using nuclear energy for medical researches instead.
