Rome, 3 May 2018
EU/E4 political consultations on regional issues with Iran were hosted in Rome on 3 May 2018. The meeting was chaired by EEAS Secretary General Helga Schmid and attended by E4 countries (France, Germany, Italy and United Kingdom) at the level of Political Directors. The Iranian delegation was led by Hossein Jaberi Ansari, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs.
This is the second edition of talks in this format after the meeting in the margins of the Munich Security Conference in February 2018. The discussions, focussed on the political and humanitarian situation in Yemen, were productive. The participants agreed to meet again in this format in Brussels in the near future.
