Iran, Japan FMs hold phone conversation


Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian and Japanese foreign ministers held a telephone conversation on Wednesday, discussing issues of mutual interest including the 2015 nuclear agreement.

During the Wednesday’s phone call, Japan's Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi has urged his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif to halt action that would undermine the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers.

Zarif explained Iran's stance, saying that the economic benefits promised in the nuclear deal have not been secured because of sanctions by the United States.

Motegi also called on Iran to fulfill its responsibility as a nation on the Persian Gulf basin, on the grounds that safety of shipping in the region is extremely important, according to NHK.

Motegi added that Japan will continue diplomatic efforts to ease tensions in the Middle East. Zarif responded that he wants to closely communicate with Japan.
