President Rouhani said in a meeting with the visiting Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders in Tehran on Sunday.
President described the relations between Tehran and Brussels as historical and positive, saying, “Belgium should play a greater role in the expansion of ties between Iran and the European Union (EU).”
He said both Europe and the Middle East are suffering from terrorism and extremism and expressed Tehran’s readiness to interact with the EU to counter terrorism and violence.
“We are ready to cooperate with the European countries in sending humanitarian aids to the Syrian people,” said president Rouhani.
President has reaffirmed the peaceful nature of the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, expressing Tehran’s determination to reach a “comprehensive and final” agreement with the six major world powers.
“Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities are transparent and under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and we want the preservation of all the principal rights of our nation in the final agreement,”
He expressed hope that the Sextet of world powers would also contribute to the building of “the first step of confidence” between Iran and the West.
“Sanctions, particularly unilateral sanctions, are a breach of human rights and against the interests of nations,” he added.
The Belgian foreign minister, for his part, said that his country is keen to improve relations with Iran.
Reynders hoped that the final agreement between Iran and the six powers would lead to the normalization of economic relations between Tehran and European countries.
