Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi says president-elect Hassan Rohani seeks constructive interaction with the world, Press TV reported.
Qasemi said on Wednesday that Iran's newly-elected president "is familiar and well-versed in international affairs and is an expert on international relations and ... his slogan has always been cooperation and constructive interaction with the world."
He made the remarks during an international conference, which was hosted by the Munich Security Conference Foundation (MSC) and the F.A.Z. Forum in the German city of Frankfurt to discuss "energy security."
The event was participated by leading politicians, business executives and scientists to discuss the economic, environmental and security policy issues surrounding energy security in the 21st century.
The Iranian minister further described Iran's June 14 presidential election as an "amazing" event which shows the existence of "complete democracy" in the Islamic Republic.
Qasemi also criticized US-engineered sanctions against Iran, stressing that anti-Iran bans "disrupt the cycle of energy security."
Last year, the Islamic Republic invested more than USD 30 billion in the energy sector despite the anti-Iran bans, the Iranian oil minister noted.
"We are strongly against politicizing the energy issue and [we] are critical of the performance of main consumer countries which use the energy issue as a tool to achieve their political ends," the Iranian minister said.
The United States, the Israeli regime and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.
Washington and the European Union have imposed a series of illegal unilateral sanctions on the Islamic Republic's oil and financial sectors.
Iran rejects the allegation over its nuclear energy program and argues that as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it is entitled to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
