Iran's Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi said that the recent resolution issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors generally covers what is sought by Iran, IRNA reported from Tehran.
A report released by the Foreign Ministry's Information and Media Department quoting Kharrazi speaking to IRIB Channel 2 on Thursday night added that Iran's right to get access to nuclear energy, not bringing up the issue at the UN Security Council and ignoring the US-backed trigger mechanism are among Iran's major achievements.
He added, "Thus, it is proved that dialogue is the only way to come to terms with Iran, rather than resorting to the US policy of threat."
Turning to the case as a good example that only mutual respect and dialogue can pave the way for reaching agreement with Iran, he hoped that others will learn a good lesson from it.
Kharrazi declared Iran's readiness to cooperate with IAEA within the framework of its safeguard and the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and expressed hope that Europe will also comply with its commitments to provide the grounds for further cooperation by Iran. "The recent events reflect the victory of dialogue and multilateralism over the US-favored policy of unilateralism," he reiterated.
Kharrazi added that Europe's approach ended up in strengthening EU-Iran ties and provided the opportunity for Europeans to benefit from Iran's influence in the region.
