President of the Senate of Belgium Christine Defraigne and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif have discussed regional developments and ways for strengthening bilateral ties.
At a meeting with Christine Defraigne in Tehran, Zarif said that Iran has fulfilled its commitments regarding the last year's nuclear deal with the world powers, Tasnim news agency reported.
Iran now expects members of the P5+1 to fully carryout their commitments regarding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA/nuclear deal), Zarif added.
Minister Zarif called on the European countries to facilitate banking ties with Iran in order to help to boosting trade ties.
Zarif further touched upon Syrian crisis and said the only solution to the crisis is through election in Syria.
Christine Defraigne and her accompanying delegation who are visiting Iran for talks on expansion of bilateral relations, have met with several Iranian officials.
The Belgian delegation's visit takes place after Iran and the P 5+1 implemented the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in January curbing Iran's nuclear activity.
Nuclear related international sanctions on the Islamic Republic were lifted following the implementation of the JCPOA.
