Russian FM Lavrov arrives in Tehran
Lavrov landed in Tehran on Monday to participate in a 3+3 conference with his colleagues from the South Caucasus area.
According to a Sputnik correspondent, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov landed in Tehran on Monday to participate in a 3+3 conference with his colleagues from the South Caucasus area.
The Russian Foreign Ministry posted on X that "Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov arrived in Iran to take part in the Ministerial Meeting of the Consultative Regional Platform '3+3' for the South Caucasus."
Iran, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, and Russia are all represented in the format while Tbilisi announced on Sunday that it will not attend the summit.
The negotiations in Tehran will take place amid drastic changes in the South Caucasus political scene, following Azerbaijan's military offensive in Nagorno-Karabakh in September, which forced the self-proclaimed republic to abandon all claims to independence. The conference is likely to be Russia's, Armenia's, and Azerbaijan's first opportunity to discuss recent regional developments.
The visit also takes place during the continued aggression of "Israel" on Gaza, as well as the possible spillover and involvement of other nations, notably Iran.
Lavrov revealed on Thursday that Russia and Turkey are engaged in discussions regarding the situation in the Middle East.
During a press event in Pyongyang, Lavrov was questioned about his thoughts on Turkey's proposal to establish a group of guarantor nations aimed at facilitating a "peaceful resolution" to the Israeli-Palestinian struggle.
It is noteworthy that Israeli raids directly targeted more than 18 houses and residential buildings inhabited by civilians, resulting in dozens of martyrs and hundreds of injuries, adding that 17 were killed in one of the bombings.
