During his visit to Tehran, Borisov will hold meetings with Iran’s First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri and Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, the government's press service informed on Sunday.

The visit foresees the signing of several bilateral documents for cooperation. The ministers from the Bulgarian delegation are scheduled to hold meetings with their respective Iranian counterparts.

The Bulgarian delegation comprises Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Donchev, Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovski, Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov, Agriculture Minister Desislava Taneva and Energy Minister Temenuzhka Petkova.

It is expected that during the visit, Bulgaria will seek a buyer for the Russian reactor produced for the abandoned Belene nuclear power plant project.
