New Zealander FM hopes for success of nuclear talks with western governments

Tehran, June 22, IRNA – New Zealand wishes success for Iran-G5+1 nuclear negotiations, New Zealander Foreign Minister Murray McCully said on Sunday.
Success of Iran-G5+1 talks will have a positive impact on New Zealand-Iran relations, McCully told a joint press conference with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

He expressed deep concern about the crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Daesh the terror group in Iraq carrying summary executions and arbitrary killings of the innocent people after capturing the rural areas of Iraq.

He called for the resolution of the humanitarian crisis which brought international condemnation of the cold-blood crimes against women, children and the youth.

The New Zealand foreign minister called for restoring law and order across Iraq by the Iraqi security forces under the incumbent coalitional government led by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maleki.

McCully referred to good relations between Iran and New Zealand and asked for enhancement of bilateral cooperation particularly in field of economy.

Zarif and his New Zealander counterpart met and conferred on Sunday.

McCully, who arrived in Tehran Saturday evening at the head of a delegation, is scheduled to meet with several senior Iranian officials.

He met with Chairman of the Expediency Council Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani this morning and discussed bilateral and international issues.
