Austrian president visits tourist attractions in Isfahan

Austrian President Heinz Fischer and his accompanying 240-member delegation, who arrived in Iran on Monday aimed at promoting bilateral relations, visited the historical monuments of the city of Isfahan.

The Austrian delegation on Wednesday toured the historical Imam Square and its surrounding handicrafts producing shops.

During his tour of the city, Fischer visited cultural heritage monuments and world-known touristic attractions of Isfahan.

‘One of the interests of mine and my wife during my state visit to Iran was paying a visit to Isfahan, and I am happy that Iranian officials arranged it for us,’ IRNA quoted Fischer  as saying prior to his departure.

The Austrian president also said that in addition to negotiating trade, energy and business ties during his visit, cooperation in the field of tourism was also discussed with Iranian officials.

Heinz Fischer arrived in Iran on Monday afternoon upon invitation of President Hassan Rouhani.

During his stay in Tehran, he held several meetings with high-ranking Iranian officials including Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, President Hassan Rouhani, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, and Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani.

Austrian President Heinz has become the first European head of state to visit since 2004, two months after an international deal was struck over Tehran’s nuclear programme.
