Iran Not Meddling in Regional Uprisings: Official

“US politicians resort to such speculations in line with their interests and Iranophobia [policy],” Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Americas Behrouz Kamalvandi, who is currently in Ecuador, said in a televised interview Friday.

He pointed out that the current developments in Middle East and North African countries needed to be studied from a wider perspective.

He further explained that people in the region no longer accepted getting humiliated by super powers and thus sought to take their fate in their own hands.

“Regional nations are no more afraid of dictators and big extra-regional powers, and are trying to determine their own fate,” Kamalvandi went on to say.

Regarding bilateral relations with Latina American countries, he said that the Islamic Republic called for “fair and mutually beneficial” relations with Ecuador.

He added that the expansion of ties with Latin American countries was high on the agenda of the Iranian Foreign Ministry.

Kamalvandi also met with Fernando Bustamante, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Commission of Ecuador's National Assembly, on Friday, and the two officials called for further expansion of ties between the two countries.

He also met with Ecuador's National Assembly speaker Fernando Cordero Cueva to discuss mutual cooperation.

Ecuador's National Assembly Speaker Fernando Cordero Cueva, said at the meeting that his recent visit to Tehran at the head of a parliamentary delegation was very successful.

Referring to Iran's advances in different areas, Cordero Cueva called for taking the necessary steps for implementation of bilateral agreements between the two countries.

Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani in a meeting with his Ecuadorian counterpart in Tehran last month expressed satisfaction over the increasing level of bilateral ties with Ecuador. He noted, “Iran and Ecuador have numerous opportunities for strengthening friendly cooperation, particularly in agricultural, industrial and commercial fields.” He emphasized that the Islamic Parliament would support all-out relations with Ecuador.

The Ecuadorian Parliament Speaker Fernando Cordero, too, said in the meeting that the major objective of his visit to Iran was strengthening the bilateral friendly ties, adding, “The Ecuadorian government and parliament both support strengthening cooperation and expanding ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran.” Emphasizing the outstanding historic, cultural and civilizational roles of Iran in the world, Cordera said, “The two countries’ shared viewpoints in political and international fields have provided a very appropriate ground for expansion of bilateral cooperation.” He reiterated, “Ecuador welcomes any proposal for expansion of ties with Iran.” Both sides during the meeting while reviewing the future of bilateral relations emphasized the need for full implementation of the formerly reached agreements.
