MOSCOW, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin is expected to take part in the ceremony of inauguration of the newly elected Iranian President, Hassan Rowhani, the press service of the lower house of Russian parliament said Friday.
Naryshkin is due to arrive in Teheran Sunday, August 4, heading the Russian delegation.
Iranian Ambassador in Moscow, Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi told Itar-Tass earlier this week Naryshkin was likely to attend the inauguration. He also said top-rank state and government officials from other countries had been invited to the ceremony.
The party of international political dignitaries who are due to gather for the inauguration in Teheran includes eleven presidents, seven parliament speakers, two prime ministers, four vice presidents, and nine ministers of foreign affairs, well-informed government officials told the Iranian media.
Iran’s supreme spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei will endorse Hassan Rowhani as President of the Islamic Republic Saturday, August 3. In line with the national Constitution, the date will be considered as the starting point of Rowhani’s four-year-long term of office.
The second part of the ceremony - the presidential oath - will take place Sunday, August 4.
