Zarif says doubtful about UK foreign secretary’s visit on Mon.

TEHRAN, Nov. 18 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the previously reported visit of UK Foreign Secretary to Tehran on Monday may not take place due to Jeremy Hunt’s busy schedule.

“I am not sure yet that this trip will take place due to the fact that there are now discussions going on in the UK cabinet about BREXIT,” Zarif told Iranian Parliament news service ICANA on Sunday afternoon, hours after it was reported that the UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt would arrive in Tehran on Monday to hold talks with his Iranian counterpart on bilateral ties and the JCPOA.

He said the visit of UK foreign secretary to Tehran had been postponed in the past due to same issue.

"If the visit is made [on Monday], meetings with me and other relevant authorities will be held and if the trip is canceled, it will take place at another time in the future,” Zarif added.
