Parliament pushes for closer ties with Iran

The European Parliament has invited Iran to appoint a national coordinator for Horizon 2020, among a range of measures intended to improve relations.

On 25 October the Parliament adopted a resolution asking the European Commission to promote links with Iran following the removal of EU economic sanctions. MEPs requested a training scheme to host Iranian researchers at European universities, and a political science programme to study regional integration.

The resolution follows a nuclear agreement reached in July 2015 between Iran, the EU, China, France, Germany, Russia, the UK and the United States, under which Iran agreed to limit its stockpiles and enrichment of uranium.
