Iran won’t compromise on its security: Khatibzadeh

Iran won’t compromise on its security: Khatibzadeh

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh announced that China will host the third meeting of foreign ministers of Afghanistan's neighboring countries.

Speaking at a weekly press conference on Monday, Khatibzadeh said, “At the end of the second meeting of foreign ministers of Afghanistan's neighboring countries which was held recently in Tehran, a statement has been issued which considered as one of the achievements of the meeting”.

The spokesman also noted that there has been no negotiation between Iran and the United States for a long time.

“There has been no direct or indirect contact or meeting between the two countries since the withdrawal of the United States from the JCPOA,” Khatibzadeh said.

“The United States, as a violator of Resolution 2231, illegally withdrew from the JCPOA and made every effort to destroy the deal. It has imposed transregional and oppressive sanctions on the Iranian people and made every effort to prevent Iran from trade and economic relations with other countries. Therefore, it is inconceivable that a dialogue between Tehran and Washington will take place in any format until these facts change,” he added.

"As stated in the Vienna talks, the talks are aimed at ensuring a firm, committed and practical return of the United States to its commitments," the spokesman went on to say.

he also pointed to Vienna talks on reviving the JCPOA, saying that the date of the Vienna talks will be finalized this week.

Regarding Israel’s recent threats against Iran, Khatibzadeh said, “The Zionist regime is well aware of Iran’s capabilities and knows that Iran won’t compromise on its national security with anyone”.

On the allocation of $1.5 billion by the Zionist regime for military action against Iran's nuclear facilities, the spokesman said, "The essence of this regime is to create crisis and insecurity".

On the ongoing Tehran-Riyadh interactions, Khatibzadeh said, “The talks continued seriously and their success depended on whether the other party was serious about them and whether they were keen to stop making remarks which serve just media propaganda purposes”.
