In separate telephone conversations with a number of his foreign counterparts, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif talked about Tehran’s relations with the states.
The top Iranian diplomat on Tuesday held telephone conversations with his Pakistani, Turkish, Omani and South African opposite numbers.
Zarif congratulated Pakistan’s Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Turkey’s Mevlut Cavusoglu, the Sultanate of Oman’s Sayyid Badr bin Hamad bin Hamood Al Busaidi, and South Africa’s Naledi Pandor on the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha.
The Iranian foreign minister also talked about the latest developments in Tehran’s bilateral relations with Islamabad, Ankara, Muscat and Pretoria.
Eid al-Adha is one of Islam’s holiest festivals celebrated annually around the world and an official holiday in Muslim-majority countries.
In the Islamic calendar, Eid al-Adha occurs on the 10th day of the lunar month of Dhu al-Hijjah and is also the third day of the Hajj pilgrimage in Mecca.
