Repetition of Baseless Claims against Iran Becomes Tedious: Iran's FM

During a joint press conference with his Hungarian counterpart, Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, expressed his view that the repetition of baseless claims against Iran has become tedious.

EghtesadOnline: Amirabdollahian and Péter Szijjártó, the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, held discussions at the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs building on Thursday.

After the meeting, the ministers held a joint press conference where they shared their thoughts on the discussions.

Amirabdollahian stated that “productive talks” have been held with the Hungarian minister and various plans were discussed.

"Today, we witnessed the holding of the Joint Economic Cooperation Commission of the two countries. We also had important discussions on topics of interest…, all dimensions of cooperation, including agriculture, water management, industry, energy, and student exchange, were discussed," Amirabdollahian added.

He continued that the relationship between the two countries is progressing, as shown by the signing of the Economic Commission Protocol and the Agricultural Cooperation Roadmap, adding, “We also addressed international issues, including the focus on Gaza and the rights of the Palestinian people. Despite differences in political solutions, we emphasize the need to uphold Palestinian rights.”

Amirabdollahian also emphasized that the two diplomats had “frank discussions on Iran's support for Palestine,” adding that Hungary should use its capacities to stop the war and restore security.

Condemning “baseless allegations against Iran” regarding the use of Iranian weapons by Russia, Amirabdollahian added that crisis in Ukraine were also discussed

Amirabdollahian emphasized that Iran does not see war as a solution. “War is not a solution in Gaza. The joint efforts of the United States and England to expand the scope of war to other areas are wrong,” he said.

Stressing that the Yemenis have their own independent positions, he added that the US must stop its hypocrisy. “They talk about reducing war [but they actually] mean to continue genocide in Gaza. American officials talk about peace must turn into a decisive decision," he concluded.

On his part Szijjártó stated that he was here in Tehran to prevent conflicts from escalating in the region and to improve the situation in the Middle East.

"The escalation of the situation in the region could threaten global security. Hungary respects Iran and next year we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of our relations. Our relationship is strong, with 2,000 Iranian citizens in Hungary. We are concerned about the Middle East war and want to prevent any further attacks. The global community must ensure that the situation does not escalate further. All parties must act responsibly. We welcome Iran's role in this regard."

Regarding the situation in the region Szijjártó mentioned that he has recently been to Lebanon, adding that the Arab country “does not want the situation to escalate”.

Regarding the Iranian nuclear agreement he added that implementing the agreement can improve global security. He also said that he asked his country to hold educational programs for Iran regarding the JCPOA.

“We thank Iran for their availability and hope our discussions improve mutual understanding," he said, stating that he was thankful for being able to talk to the Iranian Foreign Minister. He also expressed hope that these discussions will help improve the two countries’ mutual understanding. / Tasnim
