Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani at the last moment cancelled a planned two-day visit to Vienna.
Hassan Rouhani was scheduled to arrive in the capital of Austria in the second half of the day on March 29. However, a few hours before his visit, the representatives of Iran said that the trip is canceled «for security reasons».
In the office of the President of Austria told reporters that the Iranian side did not specify how they evaluated the situation and chose not to decipher the meaning of the term «security reasons».
Note that in February the official visit to Austria was cancelled Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, as he was invited to Moscow. «In response to recent events in the region and the perceived need in the meeting of the presidents of Israel and Russia in Moscow, Reuven Rivlin was forced to postpone his trip to Australia, which was to be held in the near future», — said in a statement released by the office of the Israeli President. About the decision of Reuven Rivlin in Vienna learned from the media reports.
