Canada's federal government is making plans to meet with officials from Iran in Ottawa to discuss prospects for resuming diplomatic relations severed six years ago, according to a media report.
Officials with Global Affairs Canada, which manages the North American country's diplomatic and consular relations, asserted their plans to host Iranian officials during a sit-down with their US counterparts in January, even as the US administration was reiterating plans to harden its line on Tehran, the Globe and Mail wrote on its website on Monday.  
Talking points prepared for the meeting say that "at some point an Iranian delegation will likely come to Ottawa, but no timeline has been established." 
The briefing materials note that "Canadian officials visited Tehran in May and October 2017 to discuss re-engagement and a range of regional and bilateral issues," the Toronto-based newspaper said.
