EU should open a representation in Iran16.10.2013
MEP Tarja Cronberg (Greens): EU should open a representation in Iran
'I welcome the fact that, for the first time in years, Iran and the six powers have entered into detailed discussions on the future of the Iranian nuclear programme. This a definite step forward. While Iran is expected to follow a series of confidence-building measures, the EU should be ready to respond to this. The window of opportunity needs to be seized by both sides.'
'A successful resolution of the problem pertaining to Iran's nuclear programme will set a precedent which will be a model for future nuclear exits.'
'The EU needs to step up its diplomacy towards Iran beyond the nuclear talks. The best way to do it would be to establish a direct dialogue on human rights and open a representation on the ground', says Cronberg.
MEP Tarja Cronberg is the Head of the EP Iran Delegation and a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee and its sub-committee on Security and Defence.
