Iranian state media say the country’s foreign minister discussed ways of easing international financial transactions during a meeting with British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt in Tehran.
Britain’s top diplomat arrived in Iran on Monday, less than two weeks after the United States re-imposed sanctions on the country’s oil and banking sectors.
The official IRNA news agency said Hunt and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also discussed ways of ending the war in Yemen, where Iran supports the Houthi rebels against an Arab-led coalition.
There was no immediate comment from the Britain Foreign Ministry on the talks.
Iranian state TV said Hunt would also meet Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council.
