Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday attended the third joint meeting of the Institute for Political and International Studies (IPIS) and the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), IRNA reported on its website.
The meeting was held behind closed doors and in the absence of media. It was attended by a number of Foreign Ministry officials and members of the visiting ECFR delegation.
The gathering was conducted in line with the policy of closer ties with western research centers and think tanks to reach further mutual understanding between Iran and western countries.
In a recent report published by the ECFR, European countries were urged to make use of the chance created following the Geneva deal, which was reached in November 2013 between Iran and the Group 5+1, and do not wait for the US to take the initiative and remove the anti-Iran sanctions.
The ECFR's report had referred to the present opportunity as a real chance to completely settle Iran's nuclear dispute.
