Iranian Foreign Minister reiterated that the US should be after a win-win condition in its approach towards Iran.

"If the US is seeking a game at the international scene whose sum is zero, both the US and the other side are losers," Mohammad Javad Zarif said, adding, "We need to perceive this reality and force others to perceive that the foreign policy is a game whose sum is positive and it is a win-win game."

Zarif also referred to the US and western states approach towards Iran and said, "A game whose sum is zero, meaning that if one side wins, the other side should lose, is not meaningful in the world today."

Elsewhere, he moved to Iran's nuclear issue and said, "The Iranian population will never back out of its rights and no government can ignore their rights. We want to show to the world that no threat is posed by Iran."

He further reiterated that Iran believes that nuclear weapons are not in line with security, but threat, as reminding Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei's remarks that use of weapons of mass destruction is "Haram" (religiously forbidden).

"Nuclear weapon has no room in Iran's defense doctrine and it is a threat not an opportunity. Iranian nations' rights should be preserved and their concerns need to be eased," he added.
