We must adopt a policy of détente and build confidence in the international arena to protect our national interests, Mousavi told reporters in the first press conference since announcing his presidential bid.

He went on to say Iran should cooperate with countries seeking cordial relations with the Islamic Republic while remaining committed to its principles.

The former prime minister warned against off-the-cuff foreign policy moves as they could negatively influence Iran's position in the world.

Mousavi, who served as the last prime minister of Iran until the post was abolished, is widely remembered for steering the country out of an economic meltdown during the times of economic uncertainty in the 1980s when an eight-year war imposed on Iran by Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

He is currently a member of Iran's Expediency Council and is favored by some in the Reformist camp due to his policies.

Mousavi recently criticized the administration of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and questioned its spending policies.
