European Parliament delegation attends Majlis session

The delegation of European Parliament (EP) lawmakers who have travelled to Iran have attended an open session of Majlis.

The three Socialist European lawmakers, who arrived in Tehran on Saturday for a four-day visit, attended the Majlis session on Sunday morning.

The European parliamentary delegation, headed by Hannes Swoboda, is scheduled to hold meetings with Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

In October 2012, an EP delegation, headed by Tarja Cronberg, the chairwoman of the European Parliament’s Delegation for Relations with Iran, was scheduled to make a six-day visit to Islamic Republic and meet with the EP Friendship Group of Iran Majlis.

However, the EP delegation canceled its trip after Iran rejected the group’s request to meet with two Iranian nationals jailed on charges of breaching national security. Tehran had ruled out the request as interference in the country’s internal affairs.
