Human rights are a litmus test for EU-Iran relations, say foreign affairs MEPs




MEPs welcomed the deal as opening up the possibility of strengthening
 EU-Iran trade, economic, cultural and environmental ties. However, the 
human rights situation in Iran, the death penalty, public executions
 and the prosecution of bloggers and journalists are unacceptable and
 will serve as a litmus test for future relations, MEPs said.

Mr Zarif acknowledged the need to improve Iran’s human rights record 
and promised to pursue dialogue on this issue with EU "in a spirit of mutual
 respect and without preaching".
