During the visit, Lavrov plans to discuss "bilateral relations, regional problems and regulating the questions over (Iran's) nuclear programme in the context of the agreements reached recently in Geneva," the spokesperson said.
Iran and world powers in Geneva last month agreed to freeze aspects of Iran's nuclear programme in exchange for a modest easing of the sanctions regime.
Iran denies that it is working to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a peaceful nuclear programme as suspected by Western powers and Israel.
Russia has aided Iran, a key regional ally since the Soviet era, in developing nuclear power generation, and completed the construction of its only functioning nuclear power station at Bushehr.
Iran is to hold expert-level talks with major powers on its nuclear programme next week in Vienna.
