Wise Diplomacy Key to Mideast Problems

Wise Diplomacy Key to Mideast Problems

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said solutions for Middle East issues can be found when the regional countries engage in cooperation with wise diplomacy.
Addressing a meeting late Monday attended by foreign ambassadors and heads of diplomatic offices in Iran, Zarif explained the outcome of the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, as well as regional developments, IRNA reported.
On Saturday, Zarif and European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, announced that sanctions imposed on Tehran have been lifted as the nuclear agreement came into force after the International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed Iran fulfilled its commitments under the historic deal.
Pointing to 12 years of nuclear negotiations, Zarif said Iran had to deal with major challenges on the way to protect its basic right to have a peaceful nuclear program.
"By itself, Iran stood against all pressures from big powers and endured serious human and material losses ... to preserve the achievements of its young scientists," he said. "Iranian people proved to the world that pressures and sanctions are not effective [in forcing them to give up on their rights]".
Referring to new capacities for cooperation arising from the implementation of the deal, the foreign minister said ample opportunities are available for foreign companies to make investments and transfer technologies.
"In the new era, all countries can enjoy great benefits," he said. On regional developments, Zarif said Iran seeks security and stability in the Persian Gulf, because tensions would be detrimental to its interests and to those of the region.
By engaging in "brotherly cooperation and pursuing wise diplomacy" regarding neighbors that is based on understanding and goodwill, Iran hopes to promote peace and security in the Persian Gulf, Zarif said.
