Russian expert describes Rouhani’s visit to NY as new hope

Moscow, Sept 24, IRNA – A Russian expert said Tuesday that the visit of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to New York has offered a new hope to Iran’s nuclear dispute.

Leonid Shershnev, President of the National and International Security Foundation of Russia, made the remarks while talking to IRNA.

Referring to Iran’s efforts to remove ambiguities and misunderstandings about its nuclear program, Shershnev regretted that certain media have not reflected the realities of such a program.

Pointing to the presence of President Rouhani in New York to deliver speech to the UN General Assembly and meet with world leaders, the Russian expert described it as a perfect opportunity for elaborating on Tehran’s new stance.

He underlined that the new Iranian government that took office in August 2013, has focused on diplomatic détente to settle dispute over its peaceful nuclear program.

New York, today, is a good place for Iran to defend its rights and interest, he said while referring to the presence of the world leaders in New York to attend the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly.

Russia, he added, has always supported Iran’s rights in different international gatherings.

Turning to Syria, he hoped the crisis in that country would be resolved through cooperation of all friendly states.
