Minister of Foreign Affairs Lubomír Zaorálek will hold talks with Ali Akbar Salehi, Vice President of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Head of Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, who will be visiting the Czech Republic on May 2 – 3, 2016. His visit will take place within the framework of the conclusion of nuclear agreement with Iran (JCPOA – Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), subsequent easing of international sanctions and shared interest in boosting the Czech-Iranian relations.
