TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- We have achieved the nuclear technology, meaning that the case is dismissed, Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said.
According to a statement released by the Foreign Ministry’s Information and Press Bureau, Mottaki made the remarks in a meeting with the Vietnamese deputy foreign minister here on Tuesday.
In the meeting, the two sides discussed mutual political and economic ties, implementation of the agreements already signed by the two sides and Iran’s membership in ASEAN.
Also during the meeting, the Vietnamese official presented Mottaki with a report on Tehran-Hanoi ties, and further viewed the present efforts to develop the existing ties as well as the two sides’ cooperation prospects as positive.
For his part, the Iranian foreign minister expressed pleasure in the two sides’ measures and efforts to expand mutual ties, and expressed the hope that Tehran-Hanoi talks and exchange of views would result in the adoption of proper solutions to the further development of relations.
Elsewhere, he noted the continued insecurities in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon’s victory in the war against the Zionist regime, election of Hamas movement by the Palestinians in the last elections in that country, and the Baker-Hamilton report on Iraq, and said, “Although we believe that the report reflects only 50% of the existing realities, its contents illustrate the United States’ wrong policies in the region in recent years and require a necessary revision of the US policy in the Middle-East.”
Mottaki further stressed that Iran’s nuclear case is a resolved issue, stressing that his country has accessed the technology, “which means that the case is dismissed.”
Reiterating Iran’s adherence to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the top diplomat underlined Tehran’s insistence on the removal of misunderstandings through talks, and concluded, “Iran persistently seeks a WMD-free world.”
