Berlin, Feb 7, IRNA -- European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana stressed the need to continue political talks between the EU and Iran, according to IRNA.

In a meeting with Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani on the sidelines of the 45th Munich Security Conference on Saturday, Solana reaffirmed Iran's important role in international issues.

Meanwhile, Larijani urged the EU to play a more constructive part in global affairs.

Referring to Iran's close and constructive cooperation with the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, Larijani vowed to proceed the cooperation with the UN nuclear watchdog agency.

Pointing to the latest developments in the world, the Iranian official warned the West against sticking to old positions on the nuclear issue.

Larijani reiterated his criticism of the EU's decision to remove the MKO from the terror list, calling it a double-standard and unacceptable.

The Majlis Speaker addressed the opening session of the Munich security confab on Friday.
