Salehi plans to say that Iran is ready to assist Libya’s reconstruction efforts, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, deputy foreign minister for Arab and African Affairs, told state-run Fars news agency earlier this week.
Abdollahian also said officials will discuss the case of Lebanese Shiite leader, Imam Moussa al-Sadr, an Iranian-born cleric who disappeared on a visit to Libya in August 1978.
Salehi left from Turkey, where he took part in an Istanbul conference on Afghanistan’s security, IRNA said.
