Iran will forge ahead with its attempts to ensure stability in the region.

Iran has always assisted regional countries, especially Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Afghanistan aimed at strengthening regional security, and will, God willing, continue to do so, emphasized President Hassan Rouhani in a meeting in Tehran Tuesday.

“The regional developments and recent unrest in Iraq and Syria were one of the axes of tonight’s consultations between the government and parliament,” said President Rouhani in a press conference after his meeting with the Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani.

He added that on the country’s nuclear program, too, Iran is busy negotiating at the time, and the Islamic Republic will definitely move within the framework of sound wisdom.

“Today, we notice that the world yields to this logic and the majority of the world countries have accepted that imposing sanctions against Iran had been an unjust move and that the peaceful nuclear program of the Islamic Republic is functioning under the full supervision of the agency,” he added.

On holding joint sessions with parliament, too, the president said that it will benefit the government, since such sessions will lead to further convergence of the thoughts and harmony in the programs, hoping that such meeting will also continue in the future to safeguard the national interests.
