Lawmaker: European team calls off Iran visit
A senior Iranian lawmaker says a group of European Parliament members has called off a planned trip to Iran.


The semiofficial Mehr news agency quotes Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi as saying that the visit – scheduled to begin Sunday – was cancelled after Iran rejected preconditions by the team to meet with jailed Iranian dissidents Nasrin Sotoudeh and Jafar Panahi. (AP)
