European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini will visit Iran on April 16, Jaber Ansari, spokesman for the Iranian foreign ministry said.

In August 2015, Tehran and six international mediators, including Russia, reached a historic deal on Iranian nuclear program, which was set to ensure the peaceful nature of its nuclear program in exchange for the termination of anti-Iran sanctions, in particular in oil sector.
In mid-January, the sanctions were removed after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verified Tehran's compliance with the nuclear agreement. The move makes it possible for Iran to develop relations in different spheres with the European Union.
