Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif, EU Foreign Policy Chief hold phone talks
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had a phone conversation with High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell on Tuesday evening.
In the telephone conversation, the European diplomat once again described the terrorist assassination of prominent Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh as a criminal act.
He also expounded on the European Union’s stances on the matter.
On Friday, Iran's senior-most nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated while traveling in a vehicle on a rural road in Absard, a city near Tehran.
Iranian officials have blamed Mujahideen-e-Khalq and the Zionist occupation regime for the murder.
