Mogherini to visit Iran in Spring

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said at the Munich Security Conference on Friday that she would be glad to visit Iran in spring 2016.

MUNICH (Sputnik) — According to Mogherini, during the visit she will be accompanied by the delegation of European Commission members for discussion of the bilateral EU-Iran relations, which have new perspectives following removal of sanctions from Tehran.

In August 2015, Tehran and six international mediators, including Russia, reached a historic deal on Iranian nuclear program, which was set to ensure the peaceful nature of its nuclear program in exchange for the termination of anti-Iran sanctions, in particular in oil sector.

In mid-January, the sanctions were removed after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verified Tehran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement. The move makes it possible for Iran to develop relations in different spheres with the European Union.
