Iraqi FM Due in Tehran Friday

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari is slated to visit Iran on Friday to attend an international conference on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation in Tehran.



"The Iraqi foreign minister accompanied by a high-ranking delegation will visit Tehran on Friday," an informed official told FNA on Monday.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is scheduled to hold an international conference on nuclear disarmament in mid April.

The conference, dubbed as "Nuclear Energy for All, Nuclear Weapon for None", will be held in Iran on April 17-18.

Foreign ministers, representatives and nuclear experts from 60 countries are due to participate in the event to discuss challenges on nuclear disarmament, countries' commitments to the issue and the aftermaths of not destroying weapons of mass-destruction.

The participants are slated to assess the causes and reasons underlying the lack of heed and attention to the implementation of nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) regulations, Article 6 in particular.

According to Article 6 of the NPT, each of the Parties to the Treaty undertakes to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament, and on the Treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control.
