President made the remarks at a joint press conference with Austrian President.

President said the priority now is putting an end to the total insecurity in the country and the misery of the people.

President firstly thanked the Austrian government for its “good hosting” of the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 countries, which culminated in the agreement between the two sides.

“The first step is to stop the bloodshed [in Syria],” president said, adding that once that priority is fulfilled, it will be time to discuss such political issues as democracy and opposition in the Arab country.

President Rouhani emphasized that the future of Syria should be built by the Syrian people themselves through popular voting.

“No foreign country can and should decide about Syria’s future,” he said, adding that all countries should cooperate for the settlement of the Syrian crisis.

President Fischer said he expected Austria’s bilateral trade with Iran to grow to 300 million euros (335 million dollars) this year, and continue to “markedly” increase in the coming years.

He also said that the two governments had agreed to increase political and economic cooperation, and the agreements would benefit both sides equally.

President Fischer said that the recent agreement reached between Iran and the P5+1 in the Austrian capital, Vienna, on July 14 opened a new chapter in the relations between the Islamic Republic and other countries.

President Fischer said Austria attached especial significance to good relations with other countries. He said such relations should not be lop-sided and to the benefit of only one party.

Both sides should equally benefit from the relationship, he said.
