Iran won’t change its position on JCPOA: Khatibzadeh

Iran won’t change its position on JCPOA: Khatibzadeh

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh stressed that Iran’s positions on the JCPOA and the lifting of the sanctions are among the principled positions of the country and will not change with the change of government.

Speaking at a weekly press conference on Tuesday, Khatibzadeh said, “Iran’s positions on the JCPOA and the lifting of the sanctions are among the principled positions of the country and will not change with the change of government. So, if any agreement is made, the next Iranian government will abide by it because unlike the approach taken by other parties, compliance with commitments has always been considered as a principle for Iran”.

Regarding the progress in Vienna talks, he said, “The progress made in the Vienna talks is a fact acknowledged by all parties to the talks, although there are still important issues that largely need to be decided by the other parties, especially the United States. In fact, the finalization of the agreement to revive the JCPOA depends on the political will of the other parties to make tough decisions on their part”.

“Iran’s delegation seeks to reach an agreement as soon as possible and to lift the oppressive sanctions against the Iranian people. However, we do not set any deadline for reaching an agreement that serves the interests of the Iranian people. Negotiations will continue until a favorable agreement is reached for Iran. As has been said many times, we are in no hurry to reach an agreement, but we will not allow the negotiations to become protracted,” Khatibzadeh added.

Reacting to a claim published in some Western media that the United States was sending a message to Iran about the recent attacks on Syria and Iraq through diplomatic channels, Khatibzadeh said, “The Islamic Republic of Iran has always stressed that the language of threat and force will not help establish security in the region. The United States must realize that its regional goals will not be achieved by bullying but rather, its situation in West Asia will be aggravated”.

“The US’ repeated and announced attacks against the positions of the Iraqi and Syrian forces on the border between the two countries are only to hit the main deterrents of ISIL members and to strengthen the remnants of this terrorist organization” he stated, emphasizing that Iran has never intended and does not intend to interfere in internal affairs of Iraq.

About the intention of the Zionist regime to apply for the position of observer member in the African Union, Khatibzadeh expressed deep concern and strong opposition of the Islamic Republic of Iran to such a move.

He also urged African Union member states to show their political determination to adhere to the Palestinian cause and to respect the decisions of important international organizations such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to oppose any action to grant membership or positions to the occupying regime in international and regional organizations.

Regarding the position announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia that his country welcomes dialogue with Iran and his emphasis on the need to prove the commitment of the Islamic Republic of Iran to ensure security and stability in the region, Khatibzadeh said, “Saudi officials should know that Iran, based on its principled positions, has always wanted the countries of the region to retain peace and security in the Persian Gulf region”.

“This approach has contributed ending existence of the ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq and preventing infiltration of Takfiri groups into the Persian Gulf littoral states,” he noted.

“We have always welcomed dialogue to achieve positive results and we look at the negotiations with Saudi Arabia in a positive light,” the spokesman emphasized.

Regarding Azerbaijan’s proposal in order to create a platform for 3+3 regional cooperation, Khatibzadeh said, “With the liberation of the territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the ground has been prepared for the cooperation of the countries of the Caucasus region and the three countries around the Islamic Republic of Iran, Russia and Turkey, based on respect for the territorial integrity of all countries in the region. Accordingly, the Islamic Republic of Iran has followed the model of 3+3 in its diplomatic movements at the regional level”.

“Iran has close relations with the three Caucasus countries, Russia and Turkey, so it can take the first steps towards this cooperation,” he added.
