Iran-Italy Human Rights Talks “Helpful”

President of the Italian Senate Pietro Grasso said talks between Iran and Italy on human rights and judicial cooperation have proven to be "very effective".
He made the statement in a meeting in Rome on Tuesday with Mohammad Javad Larijani, the head of Iranian Judiciary's Human Rights Council, who was in Italy for the third round of bilateral talks on judicial cooperation and human rights.
The Italian senator welcomed the continuation of dialogue and said this model of interaction on human rights issues should promoted.
Grasso said the threat of terrorism to Europe is real and to deal with it, the continent needs cooperation with Iran, ISNA reported.
"For a better fight against terrorism, we need judicial, police and intelligence cooperation," he said.  
Larijani said talks with high-ranking Italian officials are free of "bigotry and prejudice".
"In these negotiations, our judges could transfer legal experience to the Italian side and introduce our advanced judicial system," he said.
The Iranian official said the two countries' collaboration can also expand in the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking, stressing the need for closer intelligence cooperation.
Larijani arrived in Rome on Tuesday, heading a delegation of Iranian judicial and human rights officials.
Negotiations between Iran and Italy began two years ago, when a conference titled "Protection of Human Rights in Iran and Italy's Criminal Justice System" was held in Italy in November 2014.
The second round of talks was held in Iran in September 2015.
