Tehran, May 29, IRNA – Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said on Sunday that what brought the enemies to the negotiating table was Iran’s might and strength.
If the enemies were not disappointed from military attack on Iran, they would not choose the path of negotiations, Araqchi said.
Speaking at a Tehran university, Araqchi said that different factors contributed to Iran’s success in its nuclear talks with the six world powers.
The first factor contributing to Iran’s success in the course of nuclear talks was the country’s military and defensive capabilities, Araqchi said, adding that Iran obtained such a great defensive capability that no one dared to attack the country.
‘I can assure you that if they could eliminate Iran’s nuclear program through military attack and had no concern about its consequences, they would not hesitate to do so,’ Araqchi said.
He said that the most significant part of Iran’s defensive capability was its missile system that disappointed the enemies from attacking the country.
‘The resistance of the Iranian nation to the economic pressures and sanctions imposed on the country was another factor contributing to Iran’s success in the course of nuclear talks,’ Araqchi said.
