Iranian MPs oppose U.S. senator's visit to Iran

04 January 2010 [11:04] - TODAY.AZ
A subcommittee of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) has rejected U.S. Senator John Kerry's request to visit Tehran, an MP says.
"Members of the Iranian parliament's Foreign Relations Committee (a subcommittee of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee) voiced opposition to the request after studying the issue," MP Hossein Ebrahimi told the Fars news agency on Sunday.

However, earlier in the day, Ebrahimi told reporters that the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee would make a decision about the visit on Tuesday.

Last week, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast confirmed reports that US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry had submitted a formal request to visit Iran.
