TEHRAN, May 26 (MNA) – In a meeting with Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi Sun., Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araghchi rejected any direct and indirect talks with the United States.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araghchi arrived in Oman on Sunday afternoon as the first leg of his regional tour to Oman, Kuwait and Qatar.

Araghchi met with Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi to discuss the latest developments in the region.

In the meeting, the Iranian deputy foreign minister stressed the significance of peace and security in the important Persian Gulf region and warned against the destructive policies of the United States and some of its regional allies.

Rejecting any direct or indirect talks with the United States, the Iranian diplomat said "the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to establish a balanced and constructive relationship with all the countries of the Persian Gulf region based on mutual respect and mutual interests."

Emphasizing that the Islamic Republic of Iran does not seek to escalate the tension in the region, he added that putting an end to the sanctions and the possibility of benefiting from the interests of economic cooperation for all the countries in the region can bring peace and stability.
