He called the delegation's visit important in terms of the development of the relations.
"If the negotiations with the European Parliament yield positive results, then, it will create opportunities to further improve the relations," Jalali said.
The European Union issued fresh sanctions against three Iranian ministers and 26 others on Oct.12, while the Union imposed sanctions against other 32 Iranian officials in April.
Earlier, European Union leaders have approved a new set of sanctions against Iran.
