"We are going to witness a very bright prospect for the strong presence of the system overseas within the coming years," he said.
Speaking at a dinner banquet thrown in his honor by the province's governor general, he said, "Prospects of this presence are already clear." The minister said the main mission of Foreign Ministry is to strive to safeguard national security, secure national interests and promote ideological and cultural principles of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Addressing the audience including a group of Iranian ambassadors, the minister said the policy of the government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been based on self-belief and the motto of "We Can." "This policy encourages a more active role played by Tehran in domestic and foreign scenes," Mottaki stressed.
The Iranian ambassadors are in Iran to attend a seminar to review the latest national developments.
