India takes steps in developing ties with Iran

The spokesperson said that the experience has shown that countries are willing to establish foundations for common interests with independent countries, including Iran, disregarding unilateral U.S. sanctions. The agreement between Iran and India on the development of the Chabahar port, with India’s understanding of the nature of unilateral U.S. sanctions, has been implemented and is not limited to India alone. 

“Extensive relations and cooperation with Iran show that U.S. sanctions are not deterrent to countries interested in maintaining their political independence and cooperating with Iran,”

Iran, IAEA continue discussions to resolve remaining issues

Our discussions to resolve remaining issues continue, and during Grossi’s visit, both sides agreed to continue their negotiations, he said.

Kanaani also said that “fortunately, we are seeing an increase in new countries declaring political support for the actions of the South African government, with these new countries stating that they will join in this initiative.”

The spokesperson underscored that “Iran politically supports such complaints, but in terms of Iran’s entry as a recognized country, we naturally have our own specific legal approach and considerations in the matter of not recognizing the Zionist regime. Iran supports all honorable actions taken by governments.”

He said that naturally, Iran considers any interventionist remarks by the authorities of these countries in Iran’s internal affairs, including Iran’s legal cases, as unacceptable.

Kanaani concluded by stating that “our diplomatic negotiations with the American side are being conducted through intermediaries and within the framework of lifting sanctions, which has been ongoing so far.”
