Iran foreign minister made surprise by landing at Biarritz, France during #G7 summit on board Airbus A321 direct flight from Tehran

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif flew into Biarritz in southwestern France for the G7 summit.

Mohammad Javad Zarif flew on board an Airbus A321-200 (reg. EP-IGD), a direct flight from Tehran.

The French presidency confirmed his arrival, but emphasised no talks were planned with the American side.

A French diplomat also suggested – without confirming – that Trump had been made aware of the arrival during an impromptu two-hour lunch with Macron on a hotel terrace on Saturday.
