Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian is expected to travel to Baku, Azerbaijan, in the coming days to participate in the ministerial meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in the city, a source told Iran Nuances.
The ministerial meeting is scheduled to be held on July 5 and 6 in Baku.
Amirabdollahian is also expected to meet with some of his counterparts on the sidelines of the summit, including Azeri foreign minister.
The visit comes as Iran and Azerbaijan have experienced turbulent relations in recent months, and the two capitals have had contacts or exchanges of delegations to reduce tensions and manage the relations.
Meanwhile, during a phone call with Hossein Ebrahim Taha, Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Amirabdollahian put forth a proposition of holding an emergency meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the OIC on the sideline of the ministerial meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement in Baku, to address the desecration of Quran in Sweden. Ebrahim Taha said he would raise the idea with member states.
