Iran's Foreign Minister and his Belgian counterpart in a phone talk on Saturday evening reviewed the issues of mutual interest, strengthening economic ties and business transactions, and other international developments.

Hossein Amirabdollahian said that Iran’s relations with Belgium are important both from the bilateral point of the view and due to the presence of the European and international organizations in Belgium, especially since the two countries' comprehensive relations are positive.

The Iranian top diplomat elsewhere referred to Iran’s nuclear talks in Vienna and the progress achieved so far in those negotiations, saying that resolving the remaining couple of issues is in need of the United States decision, which is being pursued by the EU representative.

Sophie Wilmès, for her part, referred to the existing parliamentary cooperation and a number of bilateral agreements, and also touched on the expansion of economic ties, and resolving certain issues important.
