EU Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Canete will visit Iran on May 19-20, European Commission spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said Tuesday. “Commissioner Canete is indeed planning to visit Iran later this week on May 19-20 to discuss energy cooperation between Iran and the European Union,” Kocijancic told reporters. The spokeswoman noted that the visit had been planned for quite a while, adding that it was a follow-up on contacts that the bloc and Tehran had had since the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iranian nuclear deal, was negotiated. She also emphasized that the meeting was important in the context of reaffirming the EU commitment to the agreement.
