EU Foreign Policy Chief Says Preparing 'Important' Visit To Iran

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini says she is preparing an “important visit” to Iran following the implementation of the landmark nuclear deal between Tehran and major world powers.

Under the deal that was implemented last month, Iran has significantly limited its sensitive nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

Speaking on February 6, Mogherini said there was no set date for the visit, but she said preparations are under way with the Iranian side.

She added that all 28 EU nations were backing the opening with Iran.

Speaking after an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers in Amsterdam, she said: "It was very important to see the unity of the member states in the direction, intentions, and preparations of this work we are doing with Iran."

Mogherini also said that she will hold talks with Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on February 15 in Brussels.
