The Islamic Republic of Iran Fully Protects Its Independence

Sunday, May 13, 2018 - 10:48

A senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Dr. Ali Akbar Velayati, met with Turkmenistan's Foreign Minister Rashid Meredov in Tehran on Saturday, a few days after US President Donald Trump defied protests and last-minute lobbying by his European partners and unilaterally decided to withdraw from the historic nuclear accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and impose new sanctions on Tehran.

According to an ISCA report, Dr. Velayati made the remarks while speaking to reporters following the meeting and emphasized on special importance for Tehran–Ashgabat relations, and expressed the hope that this visit could be more fruitful than former visits.

Turkmenistan's Foreign Minister Rashid Meredov submitted special letter of President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov for the Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to his advisor Ali Akbar Velayati on Saturday, IRNA reports.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran fully protects its independence and will by no means bow to their (Americans’) bullying and we have proved this over the past 40 years," Dr. Velayati said.

Velayati pointed to several cases of Washington's violation of international treaties and agreements and said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran has the capability to stand up against Americans' non-compliance and will boost its regional presence on a daily basis."

Meredov said Iran and Turkmenistan have common history and culture, and appreciated Iranian government and nation for paying much attention to these commonalties. He added that he had exchanged views with Iranian officials about all common issues between the two countries and drew up prospects for solving certain problems.

Rashid Meredov arrived in Tehran on Saturday at the head of a high-ranking politico-economic delegation with the aim to consider ways to develop and expand all-out ties with Tehran.
