ظریف در کمیسیون امنیت

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif emphasized that US cannot prevent Iran from benefiting of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The top Iranian diplomat made the remarks in a meeting with members of the Majlis (parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission.

“Iranian foreign ministry is committed to defend Iran interests enshrined in the nuclear deal and the US itself will pay the costs of its potential termination,” Zarif said while elaborating on the foreign ministry's programs for the second term of President Hassan Rouhani.

“De-escalation of tensions with the United States and tensions management are among the foreign ministry's priorities. We want peace among countries and we do not want tension,” he added.

Zarif said that huge participation of foreign delegations in the President Rouhani's inauguration ceremony means that the policy of isolation of Islamic Republic has failed and their Iranophobia plot has been foiled.

He underlined the establishment of economic department in the foreign ministry, charged with boosting economic and trade relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and other countries.

Regional issues and active diplomatic involvement in the economic field are the foreign ministry's top priorities in the future government, Zarif said, adding that this ministry will do its best to support the private sector.
