Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan says Tehran supports global peace, stability, security and tranquility and has never pursued tension anywhere in the world.
Dehqan said on Monday that the rising international trust in Iran has compelled the global arrogance system to realize that the Islamic Republic is pursuing peace and progress, and supports human rights as well as the full implementation of international regulations on the basis of a uniform standard.
The Iranian defense minister also said that the atmosphere of power and unity that prevails in the country plus the political epic registered in the June 14 presidential election led the world to sit at the negotiating table with Iran.
He stated that Iran can now conduct talks from a strong position and without any preconditions, adding that the negotiations of the Iranian delegation at the UN General Assembly in New York will be in line with safeguarding peace and stability.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani departed Tehran for New York on Monday, and will attend the opening session of the General Assembly on September 24.
The Iranian president will deliver a speech before the UN General Assembly in the afternoon of September 24.
Prior to leaving for New York, Rouhani said he intends to introduce to the world the “real face” of the Iranians as a peace-loving nation which seeks progress without wanting harm for others.
