Stressing the role of the Majlis Research Center in providing for expert approaches based in scientific theories, Zarif stated "We must avoid extremism in foreign policy. Extremism is a sign of weakness and fear.”
In this meeting, Kazem Jalali in turn pointed out the importance of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the country’s current situations.
He said "With regard to the sanctions imposed by the US and some EU countries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a serious and principal role in bypassing or removing the sanctions.”
The Director of the Majlis Center for Research pointed to the Islamic awakening and revolutions underway in regional countries and said "The developments that have happened in the region during the past few years are leading the world into a new arrangement, where one must progress with utter consideration and precision in adopting foreign policies; so that along with the preservation of the ideals of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the country’s interests in global equations are helped.”
