The opening of a European Union office in Tehran could help Europe take further political steps for deepening relations with Iran and help facilitate bilateral trade, a lawmaker said. 
"Now that the United States has exited JCPOA and Iran is in talks with Europe to preserve the nuclear agreement with the remaining participants, the establishment of an EU office could lead to Europe's greater political engagement with Iran," Ardeshir Nourian, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told ICANA in remarks published on Monday. 
He made the statements in reference to renewed calls by Iran-based European ambassadors for opening an EU office in Tehran after US President Donald Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal—officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action—and reimposed sanctions against the OPEC member.
