TEHRAN, Jan. 31 (MNA) – Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani, pointing to free activities of MKO terrorists in France, said any support for the terrorist group would mean unfriendly signals to the Islamic Republic.

Shamkhani made the remarks in a meeting with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault in Tehran on Tuesday.

He welcomed the expansion of political and economic relations in post-sanctions era and underlined that the western countries should remain committed to the nuclear agreement signed with Iran in July 14, 2015.

He also stressed the need for facilitation of banking transactions and resolution of other obstructions, saying the survival of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) depends on commitment of all the beneficiaries for the full implementation of the nuclear agreement.

Pointing to the terrorist attacks in France that killed innocent civilians in the country, Shamkhani stressed the need for comprehensive fight against the issue of terrorism.

"Adopting a dual approach in the fight against terrorism and deviding the heinous act into good and bad, would only expand the wave of violence and crime," he added.

French Foreign Minister Jean-March Ayrault, for his part, underlined that his country is committed to the implementation of the nuclear agreement signed between Tehran and six world powers.

Ayrault referred to the mutual visits of the two countries' officials and economic activists during the past year, and said the reconstruction of infrastructure for the development of economic relations between the two countries is satisfactory.

"Delivery of the first Airbus aircraft ordered by Iran is a clear indication of good economic cooperation between the two countries," he added.

Ayrault also underlined that respecting the nuclear deal is very important to Paris.

"Paris immediately resumed all-out ties with Tehran after Iran and the six world states signed nuclear agreement," he added.

Ayrault, heading a 60-member politico-economic delegation is in Tehran to discuss bilateral ties with senior Iranian officials.
