TEHERAN, June 20. /TASS/. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will represent his country at the forthcoming summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) due to be held in Uzbekistan’s capital city Tashkent on June 23-24.
Local media reported on Monday that Iran’s top diplomat plans to visit the Uzbek capital as part of his foreign tour that will start with visits to France and the Netherlands on June 21-22.
"As of now, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s participation in the SCO summit is not planned," a well-informed diplomatic source told TASS.
Iran has been enjoying the observer status since 2005. It applied for full-fledged membership in 2008. After it was declared at the beginning of the current year that international sanctions will be lifted off Iran, all obstacles hindering its full-fledged membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization were removed.
