The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran Mohammadjavad Zarif who has attended the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly on Thursday said "It is such a relief that whispers of war have lowered, the fire is not dead, though, but the drum for war is not beaten hard.”
"Military action and forceful exertions will solve no problem. War cannot be used as a tool to reach political aims. Those who think that by suppression or by entering war they can reach their goals are so wrong,’ Zarif asserted.
Pointing also to the Iranian nuclear case, he said "Our aim is sound interaction in order to solve the nuclear issue, not negotiating for the sake of negotiation. We ask for a solution which respects the incontrovertible rights of Iranians and, of course, is able to meet the concerns of some of the members of the global community. We believe that a solution can be reached which is accepted by all sides.”
The Iranian Foreign Minister then referred to the recent anniversary of the 9/11 event and stated "September 11 testifies to the fact that one cannot imagine individual safety a turbulent world.”
