Iranian envoy: Security attainable via cooperation between Iran, regional states

London, IRNA – Iran’s Ambassador to London Mohsen Baharvand on Tuesday said that regional security, friendship, and prosperity can be acquired through the cooperation between Iran and regional states rather than foreign interventions.

Unfortunately, some Arab countries ignore Iran's open arms for negotiation, talk, and respectful neighborly policy, and issue a statement in London against the great and powerful Iran, Baharvand wrote on his Instagram account in reaction to the anti-Iran statement issued by the foreign ministers of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) and the British Foreign Minister.

He added that regional security, friendship, and prosperity can be achieved via the cooperation between Tehran and regional countries rather than foreign interventions.

Saying everyone must know that who has the most unwarranted interference and destructive move in the region, Baharvand highlighted that Iran has always extended the hand of friendship to its neighbors and invited them for constructive talks.

The British and Arab foreign ministers claimed that the sanction lifting talks in Vienna between Iran and the P4+1 are Iran's last chance to restore security in the region.

He reiterated that Iran has been making the same demands of these Persian Gulf states and Britain for years.

Earlier, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh denounced the repetitious and baseless accusations leveled against Iran in the final statement of the Supreme Council of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council.

Rejecting the repetitious and groundless allegations that the council has leveled against Iran, Khatibzadeh said that such statements show that some members of the PGCC have kept their unconstructive and inappropriate attitudes towards Iran.

The spokesman called on a few PGCC members to stop hiding behind the council and issue their unconstructive stances in the name of the PGCC to reconsider their views and approaches about regional issues and instead replace the repetitious allegations with a path to cooperation.

It’s most unfortunate that the continuation of the war on Yemen, escalation of foreign militarism, and presence of the Zionist regime as a destructive element have threatened security and stability of the region, he noted, voicing Iran's concern about those issues.

The Islamic Republic of Iran would not tolerate any interference in its peaceful nuclear program, its defense and missile program, and the affairs relating to its military and deterrent defense policies, Khatibzadeh underlined.
