Gov't Spox slams any interference in Iran bilateral ties with other states

Spokesman for the Iranian Government Ali Rabiei slammed any interference in Iran's bilateral relations with other countries.

Interference in Iran's bilateral relations with other countries, which is based on the international laws and norms, including the natural rights of the two nations, is annoying and unacceptable, Rabiei said addressing Tuesday press conference.

Iran reserves its right to enjoy trade relations within the framework of international law and regulations, and strongly condemns any interference, he added.

Friendly and normal relations between Iran and other countries are only in line with strengthening the interests of the two states and are not against any third state, he noted.

We warn against any interference in this legitimate business and will consider a range of necessary and appropriate responses in the event of such an error, Rabiei stated.

For years, the US has posed a serious threat to regional security and stability by selling billions of dollars worth of weapons and military equipment to Persian Gulf states, he reiterated.

Iran has repeatedly warned against US' destabilizing actions in the region, he said adding that no matter what these ships are carrying, there is no ban on the purchase and sale of weapons by Iran, and Resolution 2231 also approves it.

US has made all its attempts for continuing sanctions and it was defeated disgracefully, he noted.

When the US administration unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA and imposed new illegal and inhumane sanctions in violation of its rules and obligations against Iran, Iran proved that it complies with its international obligations under all circumstances, he said.

Unlike the US, which has a dark record of non-compliance with its international obligations and agreements, Iran has not pulled out of any international agreements and has not violated its obligations.

As long as all JCPOA parties abide by their commitments, they can be sure that Iran will not deviate from its obligations, Rabiei noted.

Complying with obligations and respecting the international law is one of the principles of Iran's foreign policy that does not change with the change of governments.

The nuclear case is a national case that moves forward upon consensus in Iran and is not related to internal developments and is pursued by the governing bodies.

While the damage caused by COVID19 pandemic halted economic growth in the world's industrialized nations, Iran was forced to continue fighting the pandemic and unilateral US sanctions simultaneously.

In addition to these efforts, Iranian government has used the sanctions-breaking atmosphere and the investments made to build massive infrastructure in steel, petrochemicals and gas self-sufficiency, and the huge Persian Gulf water transfer project and thousands of other mega projects.

We hope to see the final round of Vienna talks and to conclude these talks before the end of the legal deadline. As much as we are in no hurry to negotiate, we strongly oppose negotiations on attrition.

Approving FATF bills has nothing to do with Vienna talks on reviving JCPOA.

We are sure that domestic vaccines will enter vaccination cycle and Iran will be among countries with high vaccination.

Pasteur and COV-Iran Barekat, are on the verge of entering the health system. According to the Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education, a consignment including three million doses of vaccines was supposed to enter Iran, but it was delayed.

President [Rouhani] personally negotiated with the presidents of the countries which have vaccine, and vaccines will be imported for the second dose.
