Jalali denies visas rejected for European delegation

'I read the remarks by Mrs Cronberg in the press and I am very sorry that she has cancelled the visit as, for our part, nothing has been cancelled and we were eagerly waiting for the delegation,' Jalali said.

'It may only be that there was more time needed (by Iran) to make the necessary arrangements for the (European Parliament) delegation trip, but there was still time left for the visa to be issued and no need to make premature cancellation,' Kazem Jalali told Mehr news agency.

The Iranian spokesman hoped that the visit by the delegation could be rescheduled.

The delegation was scheduled to come to Tehran this week to meet with Iranian lawmakers, Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi, to obtain first-hand information on the country's political mood before parliamentary elections set for March.

Tarja Cronberg, chairwoman of the delegation for relations with Iran, told the BBC Farsi programme on Friday that, despite prior coordination, the visas for the delegation were rejected, meaning the visit would have to be cancelled.
