"Countries see everything with open eyes and discern their own interests,” said Ali Larijani, the speaker of Iran’s Consultative Assembly in a press conference after meeting the president of South Africa.
He stated "Some European countries which thought that they could make a change by pressurizing Iran have changed their views.”
"The US clamor better go unheeded. What is important is what has happened on the practical stage. Have they been able to stop Iran from thriving? All can see these things which show that circumstances have changed,” Larijani asserted.
Pointing to Iran’s nuclear case he said "The negotiations are going on with the P5+1. South Africa has stressed Iran’s right to enrichment. Having a clear understanding of the circumstances, the country continues to endorse the Iranian nation’s rights to nuclear energy.”
He also pointed to "some countries doing mischief in the United Nations” and said "Stirring sectarian conflict in central Africa was a mischief by these countries. The domineering system intends through such actions to reach its colonial aims.”
