sadeghzadeh200810051815105004.JPGIran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) says new regional powers are emerging following the fall of the world’s unipolar powers.

Iran’s top nuclear negotiator and SNSC Secretary Saeed Jalili said Sunday that the new global situation has provided grounds for independent states to bolster relations.

Jalili who made the remarks at a meeting with the visiting Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro, added that the independent countries should make the most out of such opportunities.

The SNSC secretary highlighted the key role played by Caracas in Latin America and said,” Iran and Venezuela are two influential powers in the Middle Eastern and Latin American developments and can play substantial role in maintaining peace and stability in the region.”

The Venezuelan foreign minister also praised Iran’s role in the establishment of peace and stability in the Middle East saying, “numerous countries, interested in strengthening ties with Tehran, have called on Venezuela to act as a mediator for stronger diplomatic relations with Iran.”

Many countries have admitted that Iran plays a positive and crucial role in securing stability in the region’s countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon and the US efforts in undermining the constructive role of Iran has failed.

“Latin America has a bright future without the US foothold and the regional countries have understood the importance of solidarity and independence from the United States,” he said.
