TEHRAN (Iran News) – High Representative of the European Union Josep Borrell is going to visit Iran on Monday, an Iranian spokesman said.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi announced on Sunday that the new EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell will visit Iran on February 3 for the first time after taking office.
According to Mousavi, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (HR/VP) is planned to hold meetings with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and other senior Iranian officials during his trip to Tehran.
Josep Borrell, Spain’s former foreign minister and ex-Speaker of the European Parliament, replaced Federica Mogherini as the new EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy in late 2019.
On January 16, Borrell met with Zarif for the first time after assuming the new post.
In the meeting, held on the sidelines of the Raisina Dialogue conference in New Delhi, India, Zarif urged the European countries to meet their commitments to the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and correct their mistakes in dealing with Iran.
The top Iranian diplomat also provided evidence, in an outspoken manner, for the mistakes and inaction on part of the three European members of the JCPOA (France, Britain, and Germany) and their failure to honor their commitments.
