A senior lawmaker said the European Union’s request for opening an office in Tehran could be granted, if Europeans provide practical economic support for Iran in the face of US sanctions.
Speaking to Tasnim News Agency on Wednesday, Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh said conditions are favorable for the EU to open a long-awaited office in Iran, provided they launch economic cooperation with Iran in practice.
“Today, Europeans are standing with Iran on the political front and if such a backing results in cooperation in the economic sphere as well, I believe conditions will become ripe for the opening of EU office in our country under the current circumstances,” he said.
Hailing Europe’s political confrontation with the US in support of Iran, Falahatpisheh said the EU office would be opened if Europe can alleviate Iran’s concerns in practice.
