Defending absolute nuclear rights, Iran’s logical, inalterable policy - Iranian Deputy FM

Deputy IRI FM in Arab-African affairs focusing on Jalili-Ashton Wednesday night phone talk said here Thursday evening: In nuclear negotiations priority of Iran's logical and inalterable policy is defending absolute rights in our peaceful nuclear rights.

According to the IRNA reporter in Moscow, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian who was speaking with the reporters at a press conference further reiterated, "We believe the only way to solve the issue of Iran's peaceful nuclear program is continuing the course of negotiations."

He said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the involved sides in the nuclear negotiation can reach favorable results merely through cooperation and constructive and logical pursuing of the negotiations' course."

Abdollahian reiterated, "The upcoming negotiations that would be held after reaching an agreement between Jalili and Ashton would be an important step forward if the sides of the negotiation would have technical and legal approach towards the talks, but not if they would adopt a political approach."

The Iranian deputy foreign minister in Arab-Africa affairs noted, "If the western sides of the G5+1 would enter the negotiation table with Iran logically, the hopes for achieving result would be high."

He emphasized, "The G5+1 must know that resorting to the pressure and threat approach against Iran in nuclear talks would yield no result for them."

Reacting to the comments made by the Head of the Russian Duma's International Affairs Committee Alexi Pushkov on possibility of delivering the S-300 air defense system to Iran, he said, "Iran has high defense capabilities today and even without that system our country is well capable of defending its boarders and its national sovereignty right."

The IRI deputy foreign minster in Arab-African affairs in response to a reporter's question regarding some efforts made to intrigue tribal and factional disputes in Iran, said, "We enjoy a very strong national unity in Iran and no such thing as tribal and factional disputes, or conflicts exist in Iran."

He further elaborated, "The rights of entire minorities are observed in best possible manner and the national and patriotic ties among the various tribal and religious minorities with the majority are quit strong and unbreakable."

He reiterated that eight years of (Iraqi) imposed war was the best symbol of Iranian nation's unity and solidarity, in which Iranians of all various ethnicities and religious schools of thought did their best in defense of the territorial entirety of Iran."

Focusing on Syria crisis, Amir-Abdollahian said there is no military solution for Syria crisis and the issue can be resolved through a political approach, visiting Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said here on Friday.

He noted that Iran supports peaceful solution for Syrian crisis.

"Middle East is engaged in deep and speedy developments, including the Syria and Bahrain unrests; although Bashar Al-Assad's reform plan is in progress speedily but Syria is still involved in a war with terrorist gangs supported by outside countries; some US officials and regional countries are pursuing ways to equip rebels with semi-heavy weapons; sorely weaponization of various terrorist groups, including al-Qaeda members in Syria, by US and some regional countries still continues."

The high-ranking official underlined that the Syrian army was successful in its defense of Damascus and clearing of the Aleppo from terrorist gangs.

"Iran and Russia have similar stance toward the Syrian crisis and both stress the fulfillment of Bashar al-Assad's reform plan; Moscow and Tehran condemn foreign interference in Syria and warn about spreading of Syrian unrest to the other parts of the region; the efforts done by some UN Security Council member states and regional countries to bring Kofi Annan's peace mission to an end is sorrowful; Tehran and Moscow are still firm about their support for Annan's peace plan."

"Bahrain political crisis has political solution and the military presence of Saudi Arabia is an strategic mistake; the use of poisoning gases against peaceful protesters in Bahrain which resulted in the death of many in that country is cause for serious concern; Tehran rejects paradoxical approaches toward regional developments; Iran wants the halt of violations against civilians and condemns foreign interference in both Syria and Bahrain."

Amir-Abdollahian underscored that foreign military invasion against Syria is unlikely and Damascus is needless of Iran's military support, noting that it has been years that Damascus has been fully prepared to respond to any foreign raid, including war with Zionist regime.

Amir-Abdollahian is in Russia for a one day visit to the country.

Annan took the responsibility as UN and Arab League special envoy to Syria on February 23 and resigned on Thursday, August 2.

Syria voiced regret over Annan's decision to step down, and lashed out at certain foreign states for their insincere stances towards both Annan's peace plan and Damascus's efforts to restore peace and stability in the country.

'The foreign countries, that targeted the stability in Syria and at the same time voted in favor of Annan's (peace) plan, always insisted on the failure of Annan's plan,' Syrian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday evening.

The statement added that the foreign countries have never been sincere about their claims on trying to help the Syrian government to pass through the crisis and they have even tried to make Annan's plan to fail by supporting the terrorist groups and giving shelter to them.

Meantime, the statement stressed that Syria has always proven its commitment to Annan's plan and it has always cooperated with the international observers in Syria.

Annan announced that he will leave his post on August 31, and stressed that disunity in the international community has hampered his ability to carry out his mission in Syria.

'I did not receive all the support that the cause deserved,' Annan said at a press conference in Geneva on Thursday.

Annan brokered a six-point peace plan earlier this year, but it has struggled to gain traction on the ground.

Annan's plan called for the realization of a ceasefire between the government and the opposition and also urged that humanitarian groups be allowed to have access to the population, detainees be released, and a political dialogue be started.

Terrorists and rebels widely supported by the US and some regional counties have disregarded the cease-fire that stood on top of Annan's plan and was to begin in April.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
