A delegation of European Union officials is slated to visit Tehran on Friday for the first talks with Iranian leaders since an E.U. ban on such contacts was lifted in January. Ties between Europe and Iran hit a nadir last year after a German court ruled that Iranian leaders had ordered the 1992 slayings of Kurdish dissidents in Germany. E.U. officials lifted the ban on visits in light of the relatively moderate statements made during the past year by Iranian President Mohammad Khatami.
