Baku – APA. Iran has rejected European Parliament invitation, said the chairman of the Iran-Europe parliamentary relations group Kazem Jalali, APA reports quoting IRNA.

According to him, It is not possible for the Iranian parliamentary delegation to travel to Europe in this condition: “However, I hope that a Europe visit takes place in a better condition and with a new EP stance towards the Iranian nation”.

Iranian parliamentary delegation planed to visit Strasbourg on April 27-28 under the invitation of Tarja Cronberg, the chairwoman of the European Parliament’s Delegation for Relations with Iran. However, the visit was postponed as the European Parliament passed a resolution on the EU strategy toward Iran, expressing concern over the alleged human rights violations in the country. It also claimed that Iran’s presidential election in June 2013, which was marked by a high voter turnout and led to the victory of President Hassan Rouhani, was “not held according to the democratic standards valued by the EU. More than 200 Iranian MPs issued a statement on Sunday condemning the European Parliament’s resolution against Iran. However, T. Cronberg invited them to visit Europe again.
