"It is my intention to visit in the next weeks," Ashton told a news conference in Kuwait with Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah al-Hamad al-Sabah, in comments about the invitation extended to her to pay a visit to Iran.  
 
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had earlier invited Ashton to make a trip to Tehran.  
 
Iran and the EU announced on Sunday that a deal between Iran and the six powers, intended to pave the way for a solution to the long standoff over Tehran's nuclear program, would come into force on January 20.
