|European Parliament delegation to visit Iran on Oct. 27||
TEHRAN, Oct. 15 (MNA) – A 15-member European Parliament delegation will visit Iran for a five-day trip which starts on October 27, the Majlis speaker’s advisor on international issues announced on Monday.
Hossein Sheikholeslam told the Mehr News Agency that the parliamentary team comprises MEPs from 6 or 7 European countries.
The European parliamentary delegation will probably be headed by a MEP from Cyprus who currently holds the European Union presidency, Sheikholeslam added.
He said MP Kazem Jalali, the chairman of the Majlis Research Center, will head the Iranian negotiating team with the visiting MEPs.
He went on to say that the first meeting with MEPs took place in October 2006 in Brussels, the second in December 2007 in Tehran, and the third in November 2008 in Brussels.
He rejected reports that the meeting with members of the European Parliament had been canceled, saying the meeting had been postponed three times.
