Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 7
By Dalga Khatinoglu - Trend:
For first time since 2001, Iran has been visited by a South Korean foreign minister.
South Korea's FM Yun Byung-se arrived in Tehran Nov. 7, said ISNA.
Yun's overnight trip will focus on promoting South Korea's efforts to draw more international support to denuclearize North Korea, according to a report by Korea Times.
The minister's scheduled visit also comes amid a growing call from South Korean enterprises to help them launch or expand their businesses in Iran.
The July 14 accord curbs Iran's nuclear ability to peaceful use only in exchange for lifting US-led economic sanctions against the oil-rich nation.
In Tehran, Yun is scheduled to hold bilateral talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and then visit Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, according to South Korea's Foreign Ministry.
