TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The European Union's foreign policy chief has arrived in Iran, her first visit to the Islamic Republic as nuclear talks with world powers continue.
The official IRNA news agency said Catherine Ashton arrived in Tehran on Saturday night for talks with Iranian leaders, including President Hassan Rouhani.
Ashton leads the six-nation group — the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany — in talks with Iran over Tehran's nuclear program. Iranian media say the visit signals the normalization of Iran's relations with Europe after eight years of tension under Rouhani's predecessor, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Iran struck an initial deal with world powers Nov. 24 to curb its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions. Negotiations for a final deal are ongoing.
