MP Says West Must Stop Iran Obstructions to Improve Ties

Member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Majlis, Mohammad Karim Abedi said cooperation between Iran and the West will be achieved once the latter puts an end to its allegations and trouble-making against the Iranian nation's development programs.

The senior lawmaker’s remarks came in response to earlier statements made by the European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton.

In her meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on Monday, Ashton said the European bloc is “seeking interaction and cooperation and we need to pave the way for it."

The Iranian parliamentarian insisted that the West needs to take the first positive step in this regard by lifting the sanctions it has imposed against Iran and putting an end to its “anti-Iranian propaganda.”

“I hope recent negotiations by our foreign minister will open a new chapter in accelerating the course of actions and resolving the impasse between the West and Iran,” he added.

In July 2010, EU foreign ministers approved unilateral sanctions against Iran, targeting investment and technical assistance to the country's refining, liquefaction and natural gas sectors.

The measures went beyond a fourth round of US-engineered sanctions approved by the UN Security Council in June last year, which sought to paralyze Iran's energy sector.

“Iran's nuclear activities are transparent and the European Union must not be influenced by the mischievous acts of the United States and the Zionist regime [of Israel],” Abedi noted.

The US and Israel would go to any length to achieve their evil goals and the European Union is well aware of this, he concluded.
