Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Jawad Zarif will visit Japan this month, in the wake of growing tensions with the United States. According to several diplomatic sources, his visit to Japan is being finalized in late August as part of a visit to Asia. According to reports, the Iranian government is requesting a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Foreign Minister Taro Kono. Jawad Zarif is expected to explain the Iranian position on the tense situation in the Persian Gulf. The US government wants to form a coalition of several countries, including Japan, to protect the delivery of goods through the Strait of Hormuz. While Iran calls the proposal a hostile move, it will increase regional tensions.

Iran has warned that in the absence of some economic benefits based on a nuclear deal signed with six world powers in 2015, it will increase uranium enrichment levels from next month. The US has withdrawn from the deal and has imposed new sanctions on Iran. Iran wants to know Japan’s reaction to potentially increasing uranium enrichment, diplomatic analysts say.
