Nuclear disarmament Iran's top priority: Larijani

Tehran, Jan 12, IRNA – Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said Sunday that nuclear disarmament and fighting weapons of mass destruction are high on the agenda of Iran's foreign policy.

In a meeting with Speaker of Kenya's Senate Ekwee Ethuro who is on a five-day visit to Tehran, Larijani referred to ongoing nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1, saying Iran is seeking to use nuclear technology for peaceful and medical purposes.

Larijani said that formation of new governments in Iran and Kenya is a new chance for both countries to promote bilateral ties.

He stressed the need for Iran-Kenya parliamentary relations, calling for enhanced ties between the two parliaments.

He urged regular consultations between Iran and Kenya as two important countries in the Middle East and Africa.

The Speaker of Kenya's Senate, for his part, voiced his country's readiness to enhanced trade and economic cooperation with Tehran, particularly in oil, mining and agricultural areas.

Ekwee Ethuro referred to a recent terrorist attack in Nairobi and said terrorist groups pose a big threat to African security and Kenya welcomes cooperation with other countries in the campaign against terrorism.
