He also pointed to the ongoing nuclear negotiations with the Western powers and said "If the two sides come with real political decision, we can reach a deal within the time remaining, a deal which will bring a win-win situation for all sides.”
Pointing to the current regional developments he said "The disease of terrorism and extremism are much more dangerous than Ebola. The only way to fight the threat is to join our minds and work in cooperation. The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to hold talks on the issue with all influential countries.”
Pointing out Iran and Belgium’s bright history of cooperation including joint work in stretching rail roads as well as at customs, he hoped that during the office term of the new ambassador, the remaining tasks on agenda would be carried out in due time.
Rouhani asserted "Global trade never stops and hindrances only change the course. The sham excuses that bring unjust sanctions on Iran have injured countries that used to be in good relations with Iran.”
"We expect the EU to play a more active role in the negotiations. As the place where the EU headquarters stance, Brussels can help outlooks to become more realistic and to bring about constructive cooperation.”
The new Belgian ambassador also conveyed heart-felt regards from the Belgian king and the country’s officials.
Iran is a powerful country in the region and we want to expand our relations with the country.
Expressing hope toward a solution to Iran’s nuclear issue, he stated "Belgium holds that the NPT has to be carried out on all countries equally.”
He pointed out that the number of Belgian tourists interested in visiting Iran has increased due to the rich cultural background of Iran.
"We hope that as obstacles are removed, Belgian tradesmen will expand their relations with Iran,” he said.
The incoming ambassador maintained that he intends to bring a large trade delegation to Iran in the near future.
"The Iranian student that are studying in Belgium are among the top students and they play a very positive role in the economy of Belgium with no negative points,” he maintained.
