Record low price conspiracy against oil exporters: VP

News ID: 3002679 -
ALGIERS, Dec. 18 (MNA) – Iran’s First VP Jahangiri and Algerian People's National Assembly Speaker Khelifa met on Wednesday and conferred on matters of bilateral interest.

"Algeria is a beautiful and revolutionary country with strong ties with Iran and the bilateral relations of Tehran and Algiers have always been influential in the world," said Iranian First Vice-President Es'hagh Jahangiri, on Wednesday afternoon, while meeting with Algerian People's National Assembly Speaker Mohamed Larbi Ould Khelifa.

Jahangiri reminded that Algerians toiled painfully to achieve freedom and independence which throws a burden upon the shoulders of those responsible in the government.

Even Algerian revolution was one of the sources of inspiration for the people of Iran who rose against the dictatorship of western-supported king of Iran in 1979, highlighted the Iranian official.

Moreover Jahangiri added that the same way, Iranians have paid a high price to be free and independent and all the pressures and sanctions posed on Iranians in these days are due to opposition of Iranians to the arrogant oppressors of the world.

The case of the wholly peaceful nuclear program of the Islamic Republic of Iran is a good example to support this idea that the lame excuses, despite the Fatwa of Iran’s Leader on illegitimacy of nuclear weapons in defense strategy of Iran and frequent reassurance of Iranian officials on civilian nature of atomic program of Tehran, are just to press the Iranian nation who did not bend to the excessive demands of the Westerners, noted Jahangiri.

Iranian senior official regretted that "the Westerners even embargoed vital complicated medicines to be exported to Iran," but he voiced content that "Iranians converted the crisis to an opportunity and indigenized many advanced technologies."

Touching upon the record fall of the oil price, Jahangiri commented that it is illogical and un-economical for oil exporters, and urged the Algerian official to play harmoniously in the OPEC so that a proper measure could be taken.

Algerian People's National Assembly Speaker Mohamed Larbi Ould Khelifa, for his part, hailed the strong ties of Tehran and Algiers saying that the reciprocal respect in bilateral relation has always been constructive for both countries.

Referring to the closure of anti-Iran PMD file in the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Khelifa voiced hope for expansion of ties as he deemed his country in a good status ready for development of cooperation with Tehran.
