No limit to relations with any country but Israel: Iranian FM
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 22 /Trend D.Khatinoglu /
Iranian Foriegn Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says Iran does not restrict politic relations with any country, except Israel.
Salehi underlined in an interview with Iran state agency IRNA that The U.S sees Iran as unchanged since before the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
"If the U.S. leaves its [historical] mistakes and respects the Iranian people's rights, then condition would change [to reestablishing bilateral relations]", said Salehi.
Salehi noted that disputes around Iran's nuclear program is not endless, but we want a win-win solution instead of their [the west countries] carrot and stick policy.
Some Western countries fear Iran is using its nuclear program to develop nuclear weapons, a charge that Iran strongly denies. The UN Security Council has imposed four rounds of economic sanctions against Iran's disputed nuclear program thus far.
Salehi also said that the level of relations with the United Kingdom does not satisfy Iran and recommended that the UK should reconsider its approach against Iran. "Removing the limits on Nosratullah Tajik can be a positive step to boost relation with Iran", he said.
Nosratollah Tajik, who is currently under house arrest, was arrested in November 2006 in Britain.
A former Iranian diplomat Tajik arrested in Britain, accused by the US of arms smuggling, should be extradited to America to face trial, a court has ruled.
The former Iranian Ambassador to Jordan is alleged to have been the UK link in a £1.5m illegal arms network spanning the US, the Netherlands, and Turkey.
