A delegation from the European Union held two days of talks with Iranian officials. The discussions involved human rights, arms control and the war against drugs, according to Iranian state radio. Ties between Europe and Iran reached a low point last year after a German court ruled that Iranian leaders had ordered the 1992 slayings of Kurdish dissidents in Germany. The European Union decided to attempt to renew its so-called critical dialogue with Iran because of the relatively moderate statements made during the past year by Iranian President Mohammad Khatami.
