Iran praises Turkey, Brazil for nay vote

Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki has praised Turkey and Brazil for their negative votes to the UN Security Council resolution against Tehran.

In a phone conversation with his Turkish counterpart, Mottaki discussed the conditions for continuing negotiations with Ahmet Davutoglu.

The two foreign ministers agreed that the Tehran declaration is a suitable alternative for failed confrontational approaches.

Mottaki praised Turkey and Brazil for voting against the imposition of a fourth round of UNSC sanctions against Iran.

The Iranian foreign minister touched upon the vast capacities of independent countries for increasing cooperation.

On May 17, Iran issued a nuclear declaration following trilateral talks with Turkey and Brazil based on which Tehran agreed to swap its low-enriched uranium for reactor fuel on Turkish soil.

Ignoring the declaration, the UN Security Council approved a new round of tougher sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.

Only Turkey and Brazil voted against the sanction, while Lebanon abstained from vote.
