Iran welcomes any EU initiative for cooperation: Deputy FM
Bagheri made the remarks during a meeting with Luigi Di Maio, the EU’s special representative for the Persian Gulf region, in Tehran on Sunday.
The deputy foreign minister highlighted the strategic diversity in Iran’s foreign policy, which he said has invigorated the country’s diplomatic endeavors.
He also emphasized that Iran’s dynamic and agile foreign policy has created unparalleled opportunities for international players to engage with the Islamic Republic.
Di Maio, in turn, acknowledged the influential role of the Islamic Republic in the region and beyond and underscored the willingness of all EU member states to promote dialogue and interaction with Iran.
Di Maio, a former Italian foreign minister who was appointed as the EU’s first envoy for the Persian Gulf region in May, also met with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian earlier in the day.
