Iran wants expanded ties with all states except Israel


Tehran : Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Sunday that Iran wants expansion of relations with all nations and countries, except the illegitimate Zionist Regime.

President Ahmadinejad told representatives and ambassadors of more than 100 countries based in Tehran that spirituality, ethics, human dignity, fraternity, kindness, passion and mutual respect are bases of such relations.

He said current international system, particularly the system governing the United Nations and the UN Security Council, is inherited from the World War II and has been designed by the victors in the said War for dominating the world and for exerting power over global wealth, culture and economy.

He added that since the system has been based on injustice, discrimination and immunity of a special group, privileges and special rights, they can never be able to base their decisions on justice and rights of nations — the outstanding example being developments in Palestine and the type of their approach towards them.

He added that current relations and the system, being based on injustice, will never be able to solve the core of the Palestinian problem. “In Iraq and Afghanistan too we are witnessing bitter events and disrespect for the main owners of the lands,” he noted.

The president said recourse to truth and giving more weight to human dignity, passion and kindness in international engagements serve as a main pillar of Iran’s foreign policy.

“We firmly believe that durable peace and security are only possible through justice, honoring human dignity, respecting human beings and love and kindness. This is the main slogan of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he added.

The Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes all countries that are willing to contribute to investment in Iran’s projects in the economic, commercial, cultural, monetary and banking sectors, said the president, adding that the Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes and supports all efforts for the defense of the rights of the oppressed, administration of justice and promotion of friendship, love and peace worldwide.

Iran is now the bastion of stability and security in the region and vanguard of friendship, peace, security and justice worldwide, said the president, adding that Iranian nation will along with all free and independent nations continue its efforts to ensure a world full of justice, peace, friendship and lasting security, welcoming efforts of all the freedom lovers and thinkers in that connection.
