Ireland's Foreign Minister to visit Iran on Sunday

Ireland's Foreign Minister to visit Iran on Sunday

Tehran (ISNA) - Ireland's Foreign Minister Simon Coveney is scheduled to visit Tehran on Sunday to confer with Iranian officials on the 2015 nuclear deal.

Ireland's Foreign Minister is to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on Sunday in his role as a U.N. Security Council facilitator of the nuclear deal agreed in 2015 between Iran and major world powers.

Iran has so far refused to take part in a direct meeting brokered by the European Union with the United States on the Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

But European sources this week said that Tehran had given positive signs about opening informal talks after European powers scrapped plans to criticize Tehran at the U.N. nuclear watchdog.

"Ireland is a strong supporter of the JCPOA. In our role as facilitator, Ireland is keen to maintain a close dialogue with all actors, and encourage all parties to return to full compliance with the agreement," Coveney said in a statement on Friday.

“The visit will also be a valuable opportunity to discuss the JCPOA, along with other key issues in the Middle East, many of which feature on the agenda of the Security Council,” he added.

Coveney's visit comes after his ministry this week announced plans to reopen Ireland's embassy in Tehran by 2023. The embassy was closed in 2012 as part of budget cuts.

During his visit to Tehran, Coveney will also meet with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
