Iran rejects final statement of PGCC foreign ministers

Tehran, June 18, IRNA – Saeed Khatibzadeh rejected the accusations made in the final statement of the 148th meeting of the foreign ministers of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council and described this approach as completely unconstructive.

Considering the policy of some countries of the Council as double standard in claiming to improve relations with the Islamic Republic on the one hand and making accusations on the other, Khatibzadeh considered the cooperation council as the hostage of avarice of failed policies related to a noisy minority of such countries.

Khatibzadeh rejected the provisions of the statement of the foreign ministers of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council on Iran's nuclear program and added that the Islamic Republic of Iran has always adhered to international laws and its obligations and, hence, does not tolerate any interference in its nuclear and missile programs as well as issues related to its military policies and deterrent defense, adding that it is better for these countries to think about fulfilling their remaining obligations to international organizations, including the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

He expressed hope that instead of issuing outdated statements, the countries of the Council pay attention to the realities of the region and shift their approaches towards regional dialogue and cooperation.

In the end, the spokesman of the Foreign Ministry emphasized that based on its strategic vision and fundamental policies, Iran has always seen interaction and cooperation as the solution to the region's problems and welcomed positive initiatives in developing relations based on international principles and rules.
