Iran determined to improve ties with Europe
16.07.11 09:58 Iran

Irans Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said Tehran is determined to improve ties with European countries, the English language satellite Press TV reported on Friday.

Iran and the European Union (EU) have strengthened their resolve to enhance relations, Salehi said on Thursday.

The Iranian minister described as "constructive" the outcomes of his two-nation European tour of Slovenia and Austria earlier this week.

He expressed his optimism that both sides will show their goodwill and move towards clearing up misunderstandings, said the report.

The West suspects that Irans uranium enrichment may be meant for producing nuclear weapons, which has been denied by Iran saying its nuclear program is only for peaceful use.

The United States and the European Union also accuse the Islamic republic of violating human rights which is strongly denied by the Iranian officials.

His visits to Slovenia and Austria would prepare the ground for bolstering cooperation with the EU, Salehi told reporters on Thursday.

He said that mutual relations, regional developments, human rights, nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons were among topics raised during his talks with Slovenian and Austrian officials, according to the reports.

On Tuesday, Salehi said in Austrian capital Vienna that Iran is ready for new talks on its disputed nuclear program and alleged nuclear weapons studies, but he said that his country will not give up its nuclear rights.

"Both sides have promised that their experts will sit together and think of a new mechanism of continuing our work vis-a-vis this issue," Salehi said after he met with Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano at IAEA headquarters in Vienna.

Amano, however, gave no immediate comment after the meeting.

Salehi said he held "positive" talks with Amano and "the two sides showed good-will."

Also, on Tuesday, Salehi discussed issues of mutual interest in a meeting with his Austrian counterpart Michael Spindelegger.

The two sides discussed different issues such as Iran-Austria mutual ties, developments in Middle East and North Africa and some other international issues in the meeting held behind closed doors.

Salehi and Spindelegger also discussed ways of deepening Irans ties with the EU.

On Monday, Salehi opened the Islamic republics first embassy in Ljubljana and said that his country is willing to develop ties with Slovenia.

Iran is keen on enhanced trade and cultural ties with Slovenia, he said.

Iran and Slovenia would cooperate in industrial, shipping, electronic, transport and refinery fields and Iran would be a major energy supplier to Slovenia, the Iranian foreign minister added.

Also, Salehi told a joint press conference with his Slovenian counterpart Samuel Zbogar in Ljubljana that the relations between Iran and the IAEA are at the best possible level.
