Körber Foundation welcomed H.E. Majid Takht-Ravanchi, Deputy Foreign Minister, Islamic Republic of Iran to participate in a Political Breakfast. The discussion with Members of the German Bundestag, representatives from the ministries and experts from German think tanks focused on the domestic, regional and international implications of the nuclear agreement and on current challenges and opportunities for Iran’s foreign policy. The speaker emphasized the government’s desire to engage with Europe on the basis of mutual respect and common interests. Other topics raised in the discussion included the ongoing crisis in Syria and Iraq, Iran’s relationship with its regional neighbors and fields for further cooperation with Europe and the United States.
Körber Foundation regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking actors within Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Background Discussions. As in the Bergedorf Round Tables, the discussions take place shielded from the public, so as to enable a confidential, frank, and constructive exchange.
