Iran island of stability in West Asia region: FM

Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says the country is an island of stability and security in the troubled West Asia region.

EghtesadOnline: Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a press conference with his Omani counterpart Sayyid Badr Al-Busaidi in Muscat on Sunday, Press TV reported.

He said that Iran will not allow anyone to undermine its national security, adding that the country had sent a clear message to the United States following an Israeli attack on an Iranian consulate in Syria earlier this week that Washington could not shun its responsibility for the attack.

The minister said the country will keep up boosting its relations with neighbors in a bid to help expand security and development in the region.

He thanked Oman for the role the Arab country has played to help remove a series of unilateral sanctions imposed on Iran in recent years.

Amir-Abdollahian said Iran and Oman are determined to improve their economic and trade ties with a focus on more involvement for the private sectors in the two countries.

He said the planned launch of a North-South transport corridor that connects Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan to Oman via Iran would serve the interests of all countries involved in the project.

The top diplomat said Iran and Oman share a joint stance on the need to put an end to the human crisis in Gaza where the Israeli regime has been involved in six months of brutal aggression against the Palestinians.

“Both sides agree that the war in Gaza must stop immediately and that humanitarian aid should reach Gaza without any delay,” he said while thanking Oman for admitting to its hospitals a group of people wounded in the Israeli war in Gaza.

For his part, Busaidi said that Oman sees Amir-Abdollahian’s visit to the sultanate as an opportunity to boost bilateral and regional relations.

He said Iran and Oman will seek to work together to find solutions to regional tensions and crises, including the continued Israeli aggression on Gaza which he said has inflicted massive pain and suffering on the people in the territory. / Mehr
