Iran favors negotiations yielding tangible results: FM

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said on Monday that Iran would favor any negotiations which would yield tangible results and benefit the interest of the Iranian people.

Amirabdollahian made the remarks during a phone conversation with his British counterpart Dominic Raab who had called to congratulate him on being appointed to the post.  

He however noted that the new Iranian government is making consultations inside the country on how to continue nuclear talks with Western countries.   

The foreign minister also touched upon the developments in Afghanistan, regretting about the negative impacts of wrong policies taken by the United States and some Western countries towards the country.

He reiterated that establishment of security and stability in Afghanistan would rely on formation of an inclusive government in the country with the participation of all groups. 

Referring to Iran’s hosting of nearly 4 millions of Afghan refugees over the past four decades, Amirabdollahian called for fulfilling joint international responsibility in the face of new waves of asylum seekers as well as countering the supply of drugs.

He voiced Iran’s readiness for facilitating humanitarian supplies into Afghanistan.

The British foreign secretary, for his part, expressed hope that bilateral relations between Iran and the UK will further promote with the new Iranian government now in office. 

Raab emphasized the practical commitment of his country to pay the Iranian claims.

The two foreign ministers also exchanged views on the most important regional and international developments, underlining the need for both countries to hold talks on the sidelines of an upcoming UN General Assembly meeting.

The British foreign secretary had earlier sent a congratulatory message to Amirabdollahian on his appointment to the post by President Ebrahim Raisi and winning the vote of confidence of the Parliament.
