North Korea to enter negotiations with US with full vigilance

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran urged the North Korean government to enter the negotiations with the United States with full vigilance.

Speaking in his weekly press conference on Monday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi warned North Korean government of US breach of promises on international treaties and the country’s withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), advising Pyongyang to enter the negotiations with US with full vigilance.

“Iran’s position on the matter is clear and no change has been made. We eager to see peace, stability and security on the Korean Peninsula, as elsewhere in the world and welcome all the steps that will contribute to this process as well as the economic development and prosperity of the region,” he said about Iran’s position on the high-level negotiations between the leaders of US and North Korea.

“As regards US behaviour, approach and its intentions, we are highly skeptical and look at its actions with utter pessimism. For the time being, we cannot be optimistic about the United States' behaviour, and the government of North Korea must approach this issue with absolute vigilance,” Qassemi went on to say.

Qassemi then referred to the cooperation and relations between Iran and Russia on the issue of Syria’s crisis and insisted that Tehran and Moscow effectively continue their cooperation in Syria until the revival of peace and security as well as the destruction of terrorism in this country.

He once again emphasized that Iran’s presence in Syria has been based on an official request by Damascus to help it with the fight against terrorism.

“As long as the threat of terrorism exists in Syria and the country's legitimate government persists in Iran's advisory presence, we will stay in Syria,” the spokesman added.
