US Congressmen Apply for Visa to Visit

Three members of the US Congress paid a visit to the Iranian Interests Section in Washington and officially asked for visas to make a trip to Tehran.
Since Iran does not have diplomatic relations with the US, it maintains an office in the Pakistani Embassy to conduct any official international business that might be needed.
Republican representatives Mike Pompeo, Lee Zeldin and Frank LoBiondo visited the office in the US capital.
The lawmakers sit on three important congressional committees, namely Armed Services, Intelligence and Foreign Affairs.
The visit of three congressmen is aimed at investigating what is happening in Iran now that Washington and Tehran have entered into a nuclear deal.
"We have been led to believe by the Iranian government and our president that there's a new level of openness between the US and Iran," said LoBiondo. Deputy Director of Iran's Interests Section Abolfazl Mehrabadi showed a friendly reaction to the congressmen and hoped that they would receive some preliminary word about their visa applications by Monday, the Weekly Standard reported.
After leaving the embassy, Zeldin said he is genuinely "hopeful that the visa applications will be approved."
