Envoy: Iran prioritizes relations with Russia, China, India

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Ambassador to Moscow Mehdi Sanayee underlined that Tehran seeks to further develop its ties with the neighboring and East Asian countries, specially Russia, China and India.

“The Islamic Republic intends to expand its relations with Russia, China and India,” Sanayee said in a press conference in Moscow on Tuesday.

“Strengthening relations with Russia is among the foreign policy priorities of President Hassan Rouhani’s government,” he said, adding that Tehran’s efforts to settle its differences with the West shouldn’t be seen as ignoring the importance of ties with Russia.

Sanayee said that the new leaders of the Islamic Republic seek to settle differences and establish friendly relations with all the world states, remove sanctions against Tehran, fight terrorism and proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) and obviate ambiguities of Tehran’s nuclear program.

Iran is in talks with the world powers to settle differences and obviate ambiguities about its nuclear program.

On November 24, Iran and the five permanent United Nations Security Council members plus Germany sealed a six-month Joint Plan of Action to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program.

In exchange for Tehran’s confidence-building bid to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the Sextet of world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against Tehran and continue talks with the country to settle all problems between the two sides.
