Dr. Velayati Meets with Spain FM for Talks on Enhancing Relations

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 - 14:00

Senior Adviser to Iranian Leader Ali Akbar Velayati has paid a visit to Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Alfonso Dastis in order to widen economic relations with Tehran and extend political consultations between the two countries.

According to an ISCA report, Dr. Velayati stated that Iran-Spain relations date back to 500 years ago and now have good memories of these ties.

“Our good ties with Spain were never strained by the margins of the war in the difficult years of the Imposed War and that’s why we never forget our old friends,” said Dr. Velayati while referring to the 1980-88 war imposed by Saddam’s Baathist regime against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“Our sensitive region needs a kind of global cooperation and contribution to resolve its important issues and we are happy that Europe in general and Spain in specific are following a different and positive policy and approach towards the countries of our region,” highlighted the Iranian Leader’s top aide on international affairs.

“Those who are unaware of the nuances of the region are inflicting damages more on themselves rather than on the region,” he noted.

“Today we are witnessing that after some years that the foreigners have been interfering in the region and the region has suffered gravely from these interferences, everybody has come to this conclusion that the solution of the regional problems is political and not military; in other words, the fate of the region should be decided by the people of this region and foreign interference should be prevented,” reiterated the head of Islamic Azad University board of trustees and directors.

“We saw that disruption in the region affected the whole Europe and even your country,” said Mr. Velayati addressing the Spanish top diplomat, referring to what terrorism and crisis in the Middle East brought for Europe; waves of refugees, and ISIL terror acts.

Mr. Dastis for his part asserted that he was visiting Tehran with the intention to broaden friendly ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran and voiced hope that dialogues bring more peace in the region and the world.

“I agree with your idea for cooperation and exchange of views aimed to bring stability and serenity for the world and region, especially when it was asserted that the will is focused on political solution and not militancy.” He said.
