Iran attends in international conference on Afghan reconstruction
Iran Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said the Islamic Republic was considering an invitation for taking part in an international conference on Afghan reconstruction, ILNA reported.
He urged however that the conference must regulate its approaches so that they help secure the stability of the country.
Mehmanparast was speaking to a weekly media conference Tuesday.
He denied reports that several countries namely Germany, Britain and the UAE had refused to refuel Iran's civilian airliners. Mehmanparast denounced such reports as false propaganda aimed for stirring up a negative atmosphere among Iranian people.
To another question, he described Iran's ties with Persian Gulf littoral states and its other neighbors as excellent, adding that Iran as a priority policy seeks to expand ties with the countries in line with securing an advanced and stable region.
Concerning the inhumane treatment by the US police of Iranian national Kaveh Afrasiyabi in the United States, the Spokesman said the conduct proves the police violate the rights of foreign nationals and leave no fair living conditions for them in the US community.
Asked by Shana news agency whether Iran might complain to international bodies if petrol sanctions are imposed on the country, Mehmanparast said Iran would exhaust all legal capacities at hand to challenge such a move.
