SHAFAQNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif expressed the hope that Saudi Arabia could pave the way for bilateral cooperation with Iran in all fields by adopting realistic approach.
“We hope that Saudi Arabia could pave the way for cooperation in all fields (with Iran) by adopting approaches based on neighborliness and realism,” Zarif said in a joint press conference with his Croation counterpart Vesna Pusic here in Tehran on Sunday.
He added that the two countries face no problem in bilateral issues, specially in exchanging pilgrims, but they need to find a “joint solution on regional issues.”
“We hope that we can witness less pain in regional countries and improvement of security and stability through similar measures by our neighbors and brothers. The issue should come through by regional nations not outsiders.”
Elsewhere, regarding nuclear talks between Iran and G5+1 in Munich concurrent with the international security conference in the city, he reiterated that no decision has been made yet on talks between foreign ministers of Iran and G5+1.
“No decision has been made yet. It should be noted whether it is logistically possible that all foreign ministers could arrive in Munich or not.”
He added that Munich Security Conference is an opportunity which should not be wasted.
