TEHRAN, Jan. 11 (MNA) – Following the recent Arab League statement against the Islamic Republic, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said Saudi Arabia seeks to impose its own will on other nations to give the impression that Riyadh is not isolated and alone in its policies against regional nations.
Speaking at his weekly press conference on Monday morning, Hossein Jaber Ansari touched upon issues regarding current developments in the region.
Underlining that Saudi Arabia stands alone in its decision-making policies against the Islamic Republic, he said the country is not supported even by Arab countries, in a collective manner.
He asserted that the country tries to impose unilateral policies and tensions against nations and Muslim countries.
Jaber Ansari said Sheikh Nimr’s execution was an act contrary to human rights and international law, adding that many countries oppose and regret the action by a Muslim country.
Pointing to unveiling of Iran’s second missile city, he underlined that Iran’s defense system has nothing to do with JCPOA.
Foreign Ministry spokesman underlined that the project is separate from nuclear deal and will follow a separate way in the framework of defense strategies of a country.
He added that Iran highly regards JCPOA agreement and any legislation approved by the Congress violating the US commitments will definitely face counteraction on behalf of Iranian side.
Jaber Ansari said that the final date to implement JCPOA has not been specified, adding that any damage to the agreement may change the date and the way all sides commit their obligations.
In response to a question on Canada’s cutting of ties with Iran, Jaber Ansari said the position by some Canadian officials in the media, after the new government was announced, is a failed policy bearing no fruits.
He expressed hope the new government would take proper political and diplomatic decisions to restore the broken ties with the Islamic Republic.
