Speaking at a weekly press conference on Monday, Khatibzadeh said Bayramov will arrive in Tehran on Wednesday and is scheduled to meet with high-ranking Iranian officials, including Iranian president, Parliament speaker and secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, according to IRNA.
Khatibzadeh noted that the visit is aimed at deepening ties between the two neighboring countries as well as reviewing the latest regional and international developments following a recent dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
On November 9, Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a deal, brokered by Russia, to end the military conflict over the region.
Iran welcomed the agreement and offered to help establish lasting peace.
Azerbaijan and Armenia had been fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh since September 27. Russia several times attempted to mediate an end to the war.
Iran, which shares borders with both Armenia and Azerbaijan, had also offered to mediate between the two countries. It also put forward a specific peace initiative to end the conflict.
