PM Modi in Iran: Modi receives ceremonial welcome.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a two day visit to Iran for talks to deepen trade, investment and energy ties, was given a ceremonial welcome by the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran, on Monday.

Mr. Modi, the first Prime Minister to visit Iran on a bilateral visit in 15 years, was received by Mr. Rouhani on the forecourts of Saadabad Palace- the seat of executive in Iran.

"Stepping forward with Iran. Official engagements begin with a ceremonial welcome by Rouhani," external affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.

"Building an enduring partnership, Modi and Rouhani exchange ideas at a restricted tete-a-tete," he said.

According to the information, the two leaders had a 30-minute restricted meeting to discuss bilateral issues of strategic and business importance.

Modi is expected to sign the trilateral agreement between India, Iran and Afghanistan to develop the Chabahar port in the Islamic Republic.

Connectivity, energy security and bilateral trade are on top of Modi's agenda during his visit which comes a little over a month-and-a-half after his trip to Saudi Arabia.

Modi will here hold talks with the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei. The prime minister will also inaugurate an Indian cultural festival in Iran.

The prime minister's visit comes four months after the sanctions on Iran were lifted.

However, Mr. Modi started his Iran visit on Sunday, visiting a local Gurudawara. "The new generation should know about the sacrifices of the great Gurus and about the Guru Granth Sahib," he had said.
