Iran-EU talks

Iran’s foreign minister said Tuesday that “high-level” talks will soon be launched with the European Union following a nuclear agreement reached with world powers earlier this month. Mohammad Javad Zarif said the talks “in the near future” would focus on energy, the environment and human rights, as well as “extremism, terrorism and sectarianism” in the Middle East. He spoke after meeting with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini in Tehran. Zarif said the talks would begin at the deputy minister level and later be upgraded to foreign ministers. “Various issues are matters of interest for both sides, such as energy, transportation, trade, environment, human rights and drug (trafficking),” he said”.
