|Sanctions on Iran was a wrong policy: Swiss MP||
TEHRAN – Imposing sanctions against Iran was a wrong policy and contrary to Switzerland’s “moderate” foreign policy, a member of the Swiss National Council Assembly said on Sunday.
Luzi Stamm, who led a six-member Swiss parliamentary delegation to Tehran, made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee chairman Alaeddin Boroujerdi.
Boroujerdi praised the good relations between the two countries and said it is necessary to expand ties in different areas especially parliamentary relationship.
Boroujerdi said Iran supports promotion of cooperation with Switzerland because of its independent policies and its non-membership of the European Union and NATO.
Elsewhere in his remarks, he condemned the recent resolution against Iran by the European Parliament, describing it as a clear interference in Iran’s internal affairs.
The resolution, issued on April 3, accused Iran of violating human rights.
The Swiss delegation expressed content over its trip to Iran and called for expansion of ties among parliamentarians and people of the two countries.
Boroujerdi said Iran welcomes promotion of relations with other countries based on mutual respect, common interest and non-interference in each other’s internal affairs.
Switzerland has been representing the United States’ interests in Iran since May 21, 1980.
