Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi announced on Sunday that the European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell will visit Tehran on February 3 for the first time after taking office.

According to Mousavi, the top diplomat is planned to hold meetings with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and other senior Iranian officials during his visit to Tehran.

Josep Borrell, Spain’s former foreign minister and ex-Speaker of the European Parliament, replaced Federica Mogherini as the new EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy in late 2019.

On January 16, High Representative Borrell and Foreign Minister Zarif met in India's capital on the margins of the Raisina Dialogue 2020.

In the New Delhi meeting, Zarif urged the European countries to meet their commitments to the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and correct their mistakes in dealing with Iran.

The top Iranian diplomat also provided evidence, in an outspoken manner, for the mistakes and inaction on part of the three European members of the JCPOA (France, Britain and Germany) and their failure to honor their commitments.
