|Iran keen to resolve nuclear issue through proper interaction: Zarif||
TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said that Tehran seeks to engage in proper interaction with the world to settle the dispute over its nuclear issue, not holding negotiation for the sake of negotiation.
Zarif, currently in New York to participate in the annual session of the UN General Assembly, made the remarks on Thursday during a meeting with a number of senior diplomats and ambassadors to the UN.
“We are keen to find a solution (to the nuclear dispute with the West) in such a way that Iranian people’s nuclear right are upheld and the concerns of certain members of the international community are allayed,” Zarif noted.
He also said that in today’s world security should not be pursued at the expense of the insecurity of others and one cannot earn a win at the expense of the other side’s failure.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Zarif expressed delight that the possibility of a war on Syria has been reduced, though not discarded yet.
“Resorting to military action and brute force will not solve any problem and war cannot be used as a tool to achieve political goals,” Zarif said. “Those who assume that they can reach their desired goals through suppression or initiating wars are making great mistakes.”
He further said that the United Nations has a significant role in combating challenges such as terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, global warming and other issues.
He also emphasized that the Islamic Republic of Iran is keen to engage in interaction with the international community and the United Nations.
