Iran, Brussels hold talks on human rights, banking interactions

Politics - Deputy Foreign Minister for Euro-American Affairs Majid Takht-e Ravanchi said on Wednesday that the new round of negotiations between Iran and Brussels focuses on human rights issues and banking interactions.

Speaking exclusively with IRNA, Takht-e Ravanchi said it should not be forgotten that human rights talks are time consuming and it will take time so that the two sides will reach the same understanding.

He said talks with the European Central Bank (ECB) were another issue discussed during Iran's talks in Brussels which happened for the first time.

Iran's interactions with European banks stopped during sanctions, but these interactions are gradually improving, the official said.

In this round of talks, experts from Central Bank of Iran are scheduled to hold specialized talks with the European Central Bank which makes decision for all European banks.

On opening the EU office in Tehran, Takht-e Ravanchi said the European Union is eager to open an office in Tehran, however, he noted that this will be a time-consuming process, which needs the approval of the Foreign Ministry and other related organizations.
