FM: Good relations with Iran would benefit EU
Establishment of good relations with Iran would be in favor of the European Union, IRNA reported Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi as saying on Monday.
Salehi said Iran would become EU's largest neighbor if Turkey joined the union in the future.
The minister stressed that it would be to the benefit of the EU to fix its ties with the Islamic Republic so that it could serve the European states' interest in the future.
Salehi said that most of the European countries were keen to have good relations with Iran however they have so far failed to gain their objective as they had to follow the EU's regulations against their own wills.
Salehi reiterated that Iran and EU member states could play supplementary roles for each other.
