Thursday, October 25, 2012
Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says the next round of negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 group will probably be held next month.
Salehi noted that the meeting will probably be held in late November.
He added, however, that the venue for the talks has not been decided yet.
The Iranian Foreign Minister has also called for an investigation into Friday’s bomb attack in the Lebanese capital, Beirut.
Salehi stated that an investigation should be launched to find out who will benefit from this tragic incident.
He also offered condolences to the families of those killed in the attack, adding, “This explosion is a huge plot launched by the Zionists to complicate the conditions in the region.”
Iran’s foreign minister reiterated that the people and the parties in Lebanon will not allow anyone to sow discord in their country.
The Iranian Foreign Minister also said the Islamic Republic seeks the restoration of peace and stability in crisis-hit Syria.
“The Islamic Republic wants peace and stability to be restored in Syria,” said Salehi.
Salehi said “humanitarian principles” oblige Iran to help implement sustainable peace and stability in the Arab country.
The Iranian foreign minister highlighted dialogue between the Syrian government and the opposition as the only way out of the crisis in the country.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali has also described Tehran as a reliable partner to Europe, saying both sides should develop relations based on cooperation and mutual respect.
“Tehran is a reliable partner to Europe and our relations should be based on cooperation and mutual respect,” Salehi said.
Highlighting Iran’s progress in science, medicine, and technology, Salehi said, “There are many potentials and capacities for the development of bilateral cooperation and we are fully prepared for the expansion of ties [with Europe] in economic, trade, cultural, and scientific areas.”
