Qassemi: Iranian, Canadian diplomats hold ‘positive’ talks in Tehran

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said a delegation of Canadian Foreign Ministry officials recently visited Tehran.

Qassemi said the delegation held positive talks with Iranian officials, IRNA reported.

The Foreign Ministry official said the Canadian delegation had travelled to Tehran in May and held talks with the Foreign Ministry officials.

He said the recent visit was made as part of bilateral talks between Iranian and Canadian foreign ministries within the past two years.

Qassemi noted that the negotiations were held with a positive approach and were aimed at exchanging views about technical issues.

He also said that Iranian and Canadian foreign ministers held a meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.

The Canadian delegation visited Tehran to facilitate the restoration of diplomatic ties, the first such visit since the previous Canadian government closed its embassy in Tehran for nearly five years ago.

In September 2012, the administration of former Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, severed diplomatic contacts with the Islamic Republic on certain pretexts, some of which were under the influence of Israel.
