Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov flew into Iran yesterday for a brief visit expected to exert international pressure on Tehran over its disputed nuclear programme, and to discuss the conflict in Syria.
The trip comes ahead of a new round of negotiations between Iran and the major powers that is to be held in Moscow next Monday and Tuesday.
The Russian foreign ministry said Lavrov would devote "particular attention to preparations" for the Moscow meeting on the nuclear talks but gave no other details.
Lavrov was to meet his Iranian counterpart, Ali Akbar Salehi, and Iran's lead negotiator in the talks, Saeed Jalili, according to officials.
