President Hassan Rouhani, in a meeting with North Korean Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly Kim Yong-nam, referred to long, good, and expanding ties between the two countries and said he is confident that the ties will develop during his presidency.
He also reminded Iran’s peaceful use of nuclear energy and said that Tehran is moving totally in the framework of regulations and pressures by the US and the west are not compatible with such regulations.
Dr.Rouhani stressed Iran believes that the US and the west are always seeking a pretext to confront with those countries, which are not friendly in their view, while all Iranian nuclear centers are under supervision of the IAEA representatives and inspectors.
Kim Yong-nam, for his part, conveyed warm greetings of North Korean leader and people for President Rouhani and added that Tehran and Pyongyang are in a common anti-imperialism stance, so in this direction, North Korea has always considered Iran’s victory as its own.
He noted that North Korea has always defended Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities in all international circles and considers this right as an inalienable right of Iranians and believes that the issue should be settled through dialogue.
The Chairman of the Presidium said that the US and the west want to deprive independent states of their own inalienable rights, but independent countries will resist and defend their rights.
He also called for expansion of mutual ties between the two counties.
Kim Yong-nam is in Tehran to attend the oath taking ceremony of Iran’s new president Hassan Rohani, which will be held here on Sunday in the venue of parliament.
