Baku, Azerbaijan, May 26
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
Iranian government moves within the path of constructive cooperation with the world, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said referring to the ongoing nuclear talks with the P5+1.
Iran and the group P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) are in talks over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program to reach a final agreement by the end of June.
The parties have already reached a mutual understanding on the issue in the Swiss city of Lausanne on April 2.
Rouhani also underlined that majority of the Iranians support cooperating with the global community, Iran's State IRINN TV reported live on May 26.
"Despite a very small minority inside the country which has borrowed big speakers from others, the majority of the Iranians support the path of peace and cooperation with the entire world," Rouhani said.
The Iranian president said that his administration is obligated to protect Iranian people's rights.
He further said that unity among Iranians is vital to overcome the economic problems. Rouhani emphasized that his administration will continue its development plans despite the economic problems.
The Iranian president also argued that the period of violence and extremism is over.
The region suffers sectarianism, Rouhani said, adding the Islamic Republic can be a model for the regional countries.
He further expressed hope that stability and security would be established in the region.
Iran is already clashing with some regional countries in particular Saudi Arabia over a number of issues, especially their support for opposing sides in the Syrian and Yemen civil war. Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse the Islamic Republic of destabilizing the region, something that Tehran denies.
