(IranMania) - Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Euro- American Affairs Saeed Jalili and Polish National Security chief Wladyslaw Stasiak in Warsaw reviewed issues of mutual interest and latest regional and international developments, IRNA reported.

Weapons of mass destruction do not bring security and power to any country, Jalili said during the meeting.

"In today's world, powerful countries are those that have close ties with their nations," he pointed out, reports Trend.

Referring to the great potential for cooperation of the two countries, he called for the political will to further expand bilateral ties.

Commenting on Tehran-Warsaw friendly relations, the Iranian deputy foreign minister said Iran's valuable experiences in the field of energy can be a good starting point for establishment of closer relations between the two states.

Stasiak, for his part, called for resolution of global issues through peaceful means, saying his country favors negotiation as the best means of solving the Iran nuclear issue.

Underscoring the need to further diversify Iran-Poland ties, he called for a concerted battle against drug smuggling through Afghanistan's borders.
