Chatham House researcher: World should re-evaluate ties with Tehran

London, Feb 22, IRNA – The 40th victory anniversary of Iran's Islamic Revolution marks a big turning point in the country's history and the time has come for the world community to re-evaluate its ties with Tehran, said Sanam Vakil, a senior research fellow at Chatham House.

Addressing a round-table meeting in Chatham House, Vakil said the world should stop opposing Iran's revolution.

She said that on the anniversary of victory of Iran's revolution, people staged rallies in support of government and listened to speeches of the country's leaders, especially the Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

She added that military officials also showcased their military capabilities, thus taking part in public celebrations.

Concurrently, Iranian officials travelled to other countries to outline achievements of Iran's Islamic Revolution, she noted.

Pointing to the visit of Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif to Germany to attend Munich Security Conference, Vakil said addressing the world community, the minister said Iran is a civilized country and that's the US which has problem with Tehran.

Over the past 40 years, Iran has changed politically and economically and in different elections, people expressed their opinion on reforms, access to freedom and relations with the world, opined Vakil.

Elsewhere in her address, Vakil said the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is an important document that Iran wants its remaining in force.
