Iran's President received the German Chancellor for the first time, discussing further cooperation, ways to preserve Iran Nuclear Deal and deescalating tensions in the region.
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani had a meeting with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday for the first time in Rouhani’s residence in New York, discussing further cooperation, ways to preserve Iran Nuclear Deal and deescalating tensions in the region.
Rouhani arrived in New York late on Monday to attend the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
Discussing the details of the idea of creating a coalition for peace called 'Hope' and 'Hormoz Peace Initiative' is a topic of the President's talks with other world leaders.
He also had summits with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, French President Emmanuel Macron, Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan as well as meeting with senior US media managers, on the sidelines of the UNGA session.
President Rouhani also held talks with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
Rouhani stressed that improving Iran’s economy through removing bans was one of the commitments of the signatories to the deal, urging Europe to implement its commitments, including the operation of the INSTEX trade mechanism.
Rouhani also slammed the recent E3 – France, Germany, UK – statement which accuses Iran of being behind attacks on Aramco, noting, “Issuing this baseless statement in the current critical and complicated conditions is not constructive and beneficial at all.” This is while Yemeni forces have accepted the responsibility of the attack, saying it was a response to years of Saudi invasion of their country.
Upon his arrival at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, Rouhani said we hope that we will be able to deliver the regional nations’ message which is peace and an end to any intervention in the sensitive Persian Gulf and the Middle East.
