Bakuy-APA. Iran is ready to consider opening the European Union (EU) embassy in the Iranian capital Tehran if the EU submits a formal request, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said here on Saturday, APA reports quoting AP.

"Given the importance and capacities of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region, some members of the EU have expressed willingness to open a (diplomatic) mission in Tehran," the spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham told Tasnim News Agency.

"In case Tehran receives a formal request (from the EU) in this regard, it is prepared to study the issue within the framework of the current relations," she was quoted as saying.

Western media reported that the EU member states have shown willingness to open an embassy in Iran.

Tarja Cronberg, a Finnish politician and a member of the European parliament, said earlier that member states' ambassadors in Tehran have backed the idea when she met them in the Iranian capital on an official visit earlier this month.
