Iranian Foreign Minister
Ali Akber Salehi said the country is ready to hold negations with Europe.
"Iran wants to eliminate existing problems and improve relations with the EU," Salehi said at the conference "Iran-EU relations: Previous experiences, future perspectives", iribnews reported.
He said issues and conflicts between Iran and Europe should be clearly studied.
"One cannot turn a blind eye on these conflicts," he stressed.
According to Salehi, there is a great potential to change the existing situation between Iran and Europe.
