Zarif proposes non-aggression pact for region

Baghdad, May 26, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Sunday that Iran's suggestion for signing a nonaggression agreement with the countries of the Persian Gulf is still on the table.

Iran is after best ties with all the Persian Gulf states and welcomes all the suggestions for de-escalation, said Zarif following a meeting with his Iraqi counterpart Mohammed Alhakim in Baghdad.

Zarif added that Iran would strongly defend itself against any military or economic aggression, explaining that the US intends to make other countries follow its unilateral measures by bullying and breaking the international laws and agreements.  

Regarding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the Iran Deal, he said that the measures Iran took don’t mean that it is leaving the agreement; they are for defending its rights in the frameworks of the deal.

Criticizing the European states for not do more to preserve a nuclear agreement, he said Iran wants the other signatories of the deal to do their commitments in the deal.

He added that EU's moves to normalize economic ties with Iran were flawed and in the last year, this violation of the deal has severed.

Zarif also thanked the Iraqi people and the government of Iraq for the government and people of Iran in a condition that the US intends to impose his will on Iran.
