Tehran and Baku have sought to expand their ties, specially in trade and economic fields, and signed several cooperation agreements earlier in 2011. Iranian Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar, heading a high-ranking delegation, visited Baku in May 2010 and signed several Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) in different grounds. Also, Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Mohammad Hosseini paid a visit to Baku in July, 2010 and met with senior Azeri officials to discuss bilateral ties and cooperation, in cultural fields in particular.
