Senior parliamentary official Alaeddin Boroujerdi told ILNA news agency that Japanese PM Shinzo Abe’s visit Tehran comes within the framework of relations between the two countries and is not aimed at mediating between Iran and US.
A member of Iran's Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said, ”Reports on the mediatory nature of Abe’s visit were mere speculations; Washington asked a few countries to mediate between them and Iran."
“Abe’s visit focuses on bilateral relations, and while it is likely that he would discuss some matters related to his recent talks with Trump, the focus of his trip is not about Iran and US relations,” he added.
Boroujerdi said, “We will not have any talks with the United States despite all this messages because we know that this country is not reliable.” “The United States withdrew from Iran’s deal, they are not respecting the aim of negotiating, so any talks with White House is vain.”
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei received Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday.
The prime minister is the first Japanese head of state who visits Iran over the past four decades. He is heading a high-ranking delegation, and has met with Iran's President Hassan Rouhani and the country's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.
