TEHRAN: Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian in a meeting with his Dutch counterpart Wopke Hoekstra stressed lifting all sanctions which are inconsistent with the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, JCPOA.
Amirabdollahian emphasized the importance of the efforts made in line with bringing Tehran-Amsterdam viewpoints and implementation of bilateral agreements.
Elaborating on the latest developments in Vienna Talks, he stressed lifting all sanctions which are incompatible with the nuclear deal.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Amirabdollahian stressed addressing Afghan refugees and urged the international community to do its responsibility in this regard.
Meanwhile, Hoekstra expressed hope for visiting Iran and discussing developing bilateral relations in Tehran.
He stressed the Netherlands’ readiness to promote bilateral relations with Iran.
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has said that Tehran sees the quality of agreement alongside the element of time.
If attention is paid today to Iran’s legitimate rights, the agreement could be achieved in Vienna, Amirabdollahian noted in a meeting with his German counterpart Annalena Baerbock held on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, according to a report of the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s public relations office.
Tehran expects Berlin to play an effective role in providing legitimate rights to Iran which has faced losses after US unilateral withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal, aka Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Amirabdollahian said.
The foreign minister went on to say that Iran is ready to enhance technical, scientific, cultural, political, and economic relations with Germany.
He also discussed the latest situation of talks in Vienna, Austria, between Iran and the 4+1 including Germany.
As the foreign minister underlined, Iran has been serious in achieving a good agreement since the beginning.
So, the country expects the European sides and those in the JCPOA to consider Tehran’s red lines, Amirabdollahian stressed.
The foreign minister also underlined the necessity of not directing the talks to the media atmosphere.
For her part, the German foreign minister welcomed all-out relations with Iran and said her country is determined to do so.
Baerbock said the talks are at a sensitive point and the sides are needed to make an all-out effort to pass this phase in the shortest time and open a new chapter.
She called for further activities to reach a good agreement in Vienna.
The two foreign ministers also exchanged views about international, regional, and bilateral issues.
The 58th Munich Security Conference was slated for February 18-20 in Germany.
