Iran’s atomic energy chief departs for Brussels

MNA – Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi left Tehran for Brussels on Sunday to attend a high-level seminar on peaceful international nuclear cooperation with the European Union.

Heading a high-ranking delegation, Salehi is set to attend the 3rd EU-Iran Seminar on International Nuclear Cooperation, which will be held on Nov. 26-27.

The seminar marks the first joint event between Iran and Europe on nuclear cooperation after the re-imposition of US’ unilateral sanctions on Iran in the wake of Washington’s withdrawal from the landmark nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Prominent figures, including Secretary General of the European External Action Service (EEAS) Helga Schmid and Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi, will attend the high-profile seminar.
