Foreign ministers of Iraq Ibrahim Jafari and of Syria Walid al-Moallem are due to visit Iran to attend the conference of World against Violence and Extremism (WAVE),IRNA reported.
The two foreign ministers are scheduled to meet Iran’s high ranking officials including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Jafari will arrive in Tehran Sunday evening and confer latest regional and international developments with Zarif tonight. Al-Moallem will also meet Zarif on Monday.
The WAVE confab will be held in Tehran on December 9-10 with the participation of 40 countries.
No statement would be issued at the end of the conference but instead a directive is to be presented based on the address of President Hassan Rouhani at the General Assembly of the United Nations in 2013 during which his proposal for a World Against Violence and Extremism was overwhelmingly ratified with 190 votes as the WAVE Act.
The WAVE Act urges UN member states to take ‘appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace and achieve international cooperation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian nature.’
Prime ministers and former foreign ministers of a number of Asian and African states as well as senior officials from Iraq, Syria and Nicaragua are to take part in the gathering.
