TEHRAN, Aug. 27 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met and held talks with his Japanese and Libyan counterparts on Tuesday in Yokohama, Japan.

Zarif, who landed in Tokyo late Sunday at the first leg of his three-nation Asian tour, held talks with his Japanese counterpart Taro Kono on Tuesday.
