President Hassan Rouhani referred to the significance of comprehensive relations between Iran and Austria, saying, Despite the existence of problems in the course of the past few years, the Islamic Republic of Iran has received positive messages from Austria.
Dr.Rouhani pointed out that the nuclear activities of Iran have thus far been merely for peaceful purposes and that is the way they would also be in the future, adding that the entire nuclear activities of the Islamic Republic of Iran are under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
President reiterated, The Islamic Republic of Iran has always been opposed to production, stockpiling and proliferation of nuclear weapons and has accepted the legal commitments in this respect.
Dr.Rouhani meanwhile pointed out that the Islamic Republic of Iran is also opposed to any type of unconventional weapons, including chemical weapons, saying, “Iran has always tried to remove the anxieties around its nuclear activities.”
The president said that easing the anxieties would only be possible through constructive interactions, reiterating, “Sanctions and threatening have never been acceptable in dealing with nations and the Islamic Republic of Iran considers the unilaterally imposed sanctions by the EU against the Iranian nation ineffective and harming in the process of resolving the existing problems.”
The president also expressed hope that the imposed sanctions against the Iranian nation would be lifted and said that the banking sanctions, and more important than that the medical sanctions are inhumane deeds.
The Austrian President Hans Fischer, too, in the meeting referred to the record of his previous meetings with the Islamic Republic of Iran officials, saying, “Austria would try to resolve the existing problems in Iran-EU relations within the next six months.”
