India and Iran will discuss regional and international issues of "mutual interest" during a three-day visit of Iranian president Hassan Rouhani starting tomorrow.

Announcing the state visit by the Iranian president, the external affairs ministry said Rouhani and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will review the progress achieved in bilateral relations.

Official sources in Hyderabad said Rouhani will arrive at Begumpet Airport tomorrow afternoon and will later address Muslim intellectuals, scholars and clerics.

This will be the first visit to India by Rouhani after taking charge as the Iranian president in August 2013.

"During the forthcoming visit of the president of Iran, both sides would review the progress achieved in bilateral relations and also exchange views on regional and international issues of mutual interest," the ministry said in a release.

In New Delhi, apart from holding extensive talks with Modi and other Indian leaders on key bilateral and regional issues, the Iranian leader is also scheduled to deliver a special address at the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) on Saturday.
