TEHRAN, Sep. 06 (MNA) – In a meeting with special envoy of Japan’s prime minister, Iran's Mohammad Javad Larijani said the nuclear deal is a testament that the Islamic Republic has never sought to develop nuclear weapons.

Head of Iran's High Council of Human Rights Mohammad Javad Larijani and his deputies met with Masahiko Komura, the special envoy of Japan’s Prime Minister and his accompanied delegation, in Tehran on Tuesday evening.

During this meeting, the Japanese side expressed his interest in extending mutual familiarity between the lawyers and juries of the two countries and also on developing bilateral relations in the area of law and judicial system.

The two sides acknowledged the positive outcomes of holding human rights dialogues between Iran and Japan, and accordingly announced their preparedness to hold joint workshops in order to inform one another on their judicial system and exchange their experiences in this area.

The Japanese envoy also made remarks on South Korean Peninsula crisis. Pointing out that this crisis can directly endanger Japan’s national security, he stressed the major role of China on resolving the situation without the need for military options.

Former Foreign Minister of Japan also voiced his support of Iran’s stance in the international scene and particularly on JCPOA, adding that Iran’s constructive interactions with the world are important to Japan.

Elaborating on Iran’s opposition to production, accumulation and application of nuclear weapons all across the world, Mohammad Javad Larijani asserted “to the countries who accused Iran of developing nuclear weapons, JCPOA proved that Iran has never been after nuclear weapons, however the US and the European Union must bear in mind that Iran knows no boundaries for developing peaceful nuclear technologies in accordance with its own rights.”

The High Council for Human Rights secretary went on to add “certainly, we won’t be the first country to withdraw from JCPOA, but we will not remain unresponsive to the other party’s lack of commitment to the agreement.”
