State Foreign Secretary Masahiko Komura will visit Iran from April 22 to 26, becoming the first Japanese minister to do so since 1991, when then Foreign Minister Taro Nakayama visited Tehran, Foreign Ministry officials said.

Komura will meet with Iranian President Mohamad Khatami and other high-ranking officials during the visit, the officials said. Komura will exchange views with the leaders on ways to deepen relations between the two countries and issues of mutual concern, they said.
