(Persia digest) - The Iranian foreign minister said: “Tehran has already offered numerous proposals on signing a non-aggression pact with regional countries and the offer is still on the table.”
Speaking after a meeting with his Iraqi counterpart in Baghdad, Mohammad Javad Zarif added: "Iran wants the best relations with Persian Gulf states and to this end it welcomes all proposals for negotiations and de-escalation of tension in the region.”
He however reiterated that Iran will strongly and vehemently confront any efforts to wage military or economic war against its nation.
Zarif said: “Violating international laws and resolutions, the United States forces other countries to follow its unilateral moves.”
He also criticized European countries for not sticking to their obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and urged the European states and other parties to the JCPOA “to fulfill their undertakings.”
The foreign minister said: “Over the past three years European states have failed make practical moves and keep their promises for normalizing economic ties with the Islamic Republic and their breach of the JCPOA has increased in the past year.”
Persia Digest (PD) reported the Iranian foreign minister arrived in Baghdad on Saturday for talks with Iraqi officials.
