Regional Peace and Security Iran’s top priority

Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says the establishment of peace and security in the region is the top priority of the Islamic Republic.
Salehi also stressed the importance of Iran’s geopolitical position in the region.
The Iranian foreign minister also commented on the ongoing crisis in Syria and said terrorism and extremism were two major risks that threatened the entire region.
Salehi expressed hope that the international community would make collective efforts to bring peace and stability to Syria.
Iran’s Foreign Minister has dismissed as “unfounded” expressions of concern by certain countries about the “vulnerability” of the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) to natural disasters such as earthquakes.
“The propaganda by certain countries regarding concerns over the security of this power plant is baseless,” Ali Akbar Salehi said.
The Iranian top diplomat added that Iran has applied very high security and technical standards at the facility to ensure the safety of its own citizens, who live in the vicinity of the plant.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Salehi said Iran’s foreign policy is based on the maintenance of peace, stability and security in the region to serve the interests of all regional countries.
Iran also pays due regard to the expansion of ties with regional states based on mutual respect and non-interference in one another’s internal affairs, the foreign minister added.
“It is essential that the Iraqi government puts necessary effort into its responsibilities in ensuring the security of pilgrims of holy sites,” the Iranian foreign minister stated.
