Iran says EU's Ashton to visit on Saturday

Published: 03.04.14, 22:15 / Israel News

TEHRAN — EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton will travel to Iran this weekend, Iran's foreign ministry said Tuesday amid a thaw in Tehran's strained relations with the European bloc.


Ashton is tasked with coordinating nuclear talks between Iran and world powers, which culminated in an elusive deal that was struck in November and put into force in January.


"Ms Ashton will arrive in Tehran on Saturday night," Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said, quoted by the official IRNA news agency.


European sources confirmed the trip, saying talks in Tehran would focus on international foreign policy issues of mutual concern. (AFP)
