Canadian Diplomatic Team in Tehran

A delegation from Canada’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is visiting Iran to hold regular diplomatic talks, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson said.
In a statement on Monday, Bahram Qasemi added that the Canadian delegation, which had earlier visited Iran in May, has arrived in Tehran and is holding talks with Iranian Foreign Ministry officials, Tasnim News Agency reported.
This visit is part of the regular negotiations held between Iranian and Canadian foreign ministries over the past two years, he explained.
Qasemi noted that the discussions were held with a “positive approach” and were focused on “technical and specialized” issues.
Former Canadian premier, Stephen Harper, severed diplomatic relations with Iran in Sept. 2012, citing, among other pretexts, what it described as “continued threats from Iran to Israel”.
The two countries now maintain interests sections in the embassies of third countries.
Canada’s incumbent Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has signaled willingness to reopen the country’s embassy in Iran.
