Kharrazi: Iran wants better ties with US
Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi has said the Islamic Republic wants to improve relations with the United States, the official IRNA news agency said on Thursday.
"Generally, Iran wants to expand its relations with all countries, even with America," IRNA quoted Kharrazi as saying during a one-day visit to Luxembourg on Wednesday.
Iran's hardline judiciary last year declared illegal any calls for restoring relations with the United States.
In Luxembourg, Kharrazi was expected to meet Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, President of Parliament Jean Spautz and Foreign Minister Lydie Polfer and discuss bilateral ties and regional and international developments.
The Iranian foreign minister was also to be received by the Grand-Duc of Luxembourg. (Albawaba.com)
