Japan's Shinzo Abe Heads to Tehran Amid US-Iran Tensions
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is heading to Iran with a keen eye on international sanctions and domestic politics, BBC reports.
The visit, which begins Wednesday, is partly aimed at easing tensions between Washington and Tehran over Iran's nuclear programme.
However, observers have expressed doubt over what can actually be achieved.
For Mr Abe, the trip might help boost his image as a global statesman ahead of elections back home, experts say.
Mr Abe will be the first Japanese prime minister to visit Iran in four decades, and is expected to hold talks both with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.
