Belgrade, May 17, IRNACroatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic left Zagreb for Iran Tuesday morning.

She is the second Croatian president to visit Iran.

In the presence of the Iranian and Croatian presidents, senior officials of the two countries will sign several agreements and memoranda of understanding for bolstering cooperation.

Grabar-Kitarovic will on Wednesday attend a meeting of Iranian and Croatian representatives of private sectors and meet senior officials.
Croatian leader will wrap up her visit and leave Tehran on Thursday.
Grabar-Kitarovic's trip comes in a series of visits by world leaders to Tehran after the implementation of a nuclear agreement, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in July 2015.
Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, France, Britain, China and Russia – plus Germany started to implement the JCPOA on January 16.
After the JCPOA went into effect, all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran by the European Union, the Security Council and the US were lifted. Iran, in return, has put some limitations on its nuclear activities.
The nuclear agreement was signed on July 14, 2015 following two and a half years of intensive talks.
