IAEA BoG resolution undermined Iran's trust in talks

TEHRAN, Jul. 23 (MNA) – Iran's president spoke by phone with his French counterpart Sat. during which he said issuing the IAEA resolution was a crisis-making action aimed at creating pressure against the Iranian nation and damaging Tehran's trust.

In the conversation, Iran's President pointed to the significant increase in political and economic cooperation between Iran and different countries in the world and considered the US sanctions against Iran to be inflicting losses on the global economy, especially the European economy.

Raeisi pointed out that "Had it not been for the security role that the Islamic Republic played in the region, especially the fight against terrorism and Tehran's support for the territorial integrity and national sovereignty of other countries in the region, ISIL would declare a caliphate in Europe today."

He also emphasized that the solution to regional problems should be in the hands of the nations and governments in the region, denouncing any interference on the part of foreigners as being against regional security and stability.

He went on to say that the Islamic Republic of Iran considers the concluding an agreement in the talks as hinging on the total resolution of the safeguard issues and the giving necessary guarantees, including the continuation of valid abidance on the part of the parties to the agreement and the securing economic interests for the Iranian nation.
