Sun, Apr 15, 2018, 07:31 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 15, Teheran: Iran's Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani heading a delegation will visit Sri Lanka this week following a visit to Vietnam to discuss bilateral and international issues, particularly the Syrian situation after the recent US-led strikes.

Ali Larijani and his delegation have left Teheran for Hanoi today and his visit to the Vietnamese capital will last until April 18, following which he and the delegation will visit Sri Lanka.

Speaking to reporters before departure, Larijani said the aim of his visits is to expand bilateral relations in various fields, and to promote parliamentary cooperation with the two countries, MEHR News Agency reported today.

"One of the key issues to be discussed with Vietnamese and Sri Lankan officials is the Syrian situation," Larijani said.

"Because, to our utter surprise, international mechanisms were all ignored in the attack, which can cause adverse consequences for future conflicts. Therefore, it is needed to talk with officials of Vietnam and Sri Lanka on this issue and hope that the talks would be helpful for establishing peace in the international scene," Larijani was quoted as saying.
