Iran's ambassador to Madrid briefs Spanish dignitaries of efforts to establish regional peace
(IRNA) - Iranian Ambassador to Madrid Davoud Salehi here Friday gave a briefing on Iran's efforts to help establish peace and stability in the region in recent years, reports Trend.
He made the briefing in his talk to a group of foreign diplomats and heads of research institutes as well as a number of Spanish parliament representatives and executive officials.
"Tehran believes that peace and stability in the Middle East can only be achieved through a policy of detente, confidence building and promotion of dialogue by regional states," he added.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran underlines the need for issues and problems of the Middle East region to be solved by regional states themselves."
Pointing to the Zionist regime's atrocities in occupied lands in Palestine and Lebanon, Salehi referred to the regime as the greatest threat to regional peace and security.
Briefing the audience on latest developments in Iran's peaceful nuclear activities, he reiterated that these activities are being conducted within the framework of international law, rules and regulations.
"The entire nuclear activities of the Islamic Republic of Iran are under the full supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)," he stressed.
Tehran believes that the nuclear issue can be resolved through peaceful negotiations within the confines of the IAEA, the Iranian envoy said.
Salehi took the occasion to condemn the assassination of Lebanese Industry Minister Pierre Gemayel, saying the crime was committed by certain groups and individuals motivated by the desire to damage the unity and solidarity of the Lebanese people.
On the critical situation in Iraq, he called for unity of all Iraqi parties and sects, and underlined the need for occupying forces to withdraw from that war-torn state.
