TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini dismissed any impasse over Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities.
Speaking during a weekly press conference here on Sunday, Hosseini said that Iran would continue its transparent nuclear activities in line with the regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a press tv report said.
Pointing to the participation of the Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki in the Arab League meeting in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, last year, he said Mottaki has also been invited to this year’s conference, to be held in the Syrian capital, Damascus, and is planning to attend it.
Hosseini added that Iran has presented proposals on close cooperation among regional countries in all fields, particularly in economic areas.
He stated that expansion of ties with different countries and active presence in international organizations and circles were among the successes of Iran’s diplomacy during the Iranian calendar year of 1386 (ending March 19).
The diplomat noted that during the outgoing year, the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad paid visits to 18 countries, including the Persian Gulf, Central Asian, Latin American and African states.
The spokesman of Iran’s diplomatic body also pointed to the holding in Tehran of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and the Caspian Sea summits in the same year.
He termed as “important” Ahmadinejad’s participation in the summit of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) in Doha, Qatar, recalling that the Iranian president put forward a 12-article proposal in the summit on the expansion of relations among the countries in the region.
Hosseini also referred to the numerous meetings Mottaki held with the high-ranking officials of most European countries with the aim of bolstering economic cooperation with the Islamic Republic.
