Iran’s Rouhani due in Austria today

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani will leave Tehran for Vienna March 29 to pay a two-day official visit at an invitation of his Austrian counterpart Heinz Fischer, Iranian state-run IRINN TV reported.

Heading a high-ranking political and economic delegation, Rouhani is scheduled to hold talks with senior Austrian officials on ways to improve relations, particularly in economy.

Several cooperation documents are to be signed during the visit.

It is also scheduled to hold a joint economic forum, with participation of entrepreneurs from both countries.

The two sides will also sign an economic cooperation road map, according to the report.

Rouhani’s visit follows a visit to Tehran in September 2015 by the Austrian President Heinz Fischer, during which the two sides signed four cooperation documents to boost bilateral ties in water management and environment protection areas.

A number of cabinet ministers and Iranian entrepreneurs from both public and private sectors will accompany Rouhani during the visit.
