During the meeting in the Iranian capital on Sunday, Jaberi Ansari and Söder explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating bilateral relations, specially regional cooperation.
During the talks, the two sides stressed joint cooperation in settling regional conflicts and conferred on the latest developments regarding the constitution committee adopted by the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi, and the ways to put the committee on track as soon as possible.
They also discussed the recent talks between Iran and the E4 (Britain, Germany, France, and Italy) in Rome, which focused on the situation in Yemen.
The Iranian delegation at the Rome meeting was headed by Jaberi Ansari, who described the talks with European diplomats as "good". The EU statement issued at the end of the meeting also deemed the political talks with Iran "constructive" and announced the next round of the talks to be held in Brussels in the near future.
In a relevant development in late April 2017, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström underlined the need for the western countries to remain committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached between Tehran and the six world powers (the US, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany) in Vienna in July 2015.
"Europe should be united and determined to implement the JCPOA," Wallström said in a meeting with former Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Majid Takht Ravanchi in Stockholm.
The Swedish foreign minister, meantime, underlined the importance of cooperation and collaborations between the two countries in various sectors.
The former Iranian deputy foreign minister, for his part, underlined that the post-JCPOA era offered an excellent opportunity for development of cooperation in various fields, and said, "Common efforts will lead to the implementation of documents and agreements which were signed during the recent visit of the Swedish prime minister to Iran."
