Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has arrived in the Indian capital city of New Delhi to discuss ways to broaden relations with the South Asian economic giant, Al-Alam News Network reports.

According to reports on Thursday, Zarif arrived in New Delhi from neighboring Pakistan on the last leg of his regional tour.

“We enjoy good and close ties with India as an important regional country and a member of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM),” Zarif said upon his arrival.

He said regional issues, including extremism and violence, as well as bilateral relations will be the main themes of his meetings with Indian officials.

After the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1, the visit provides a good opportunity for the expansion of Tehran-Delhi ties, he added.

During his stay in New Delhi, Zarif is scheduled to visit his Indian counterpart, Sushma Swaraj, and the country’s premier, Narendra Modi.
