PG Security Tops Iran Foreign Policy

“The Persian Gulf is a key region for regional and world countries. The security of this region is important to us since the oil shipments are carried out through this region,” Salehi said during a question and answer session attended by foreign reporters as well as diplomats and political representatives from different countries in the Chinese capital of Beijing, IRNA reported.

“Maintaining security and peace in the Persian Gulf and keeping the Strait of Hormuz open are among the top priorities of Iran's foreign policy,” the Iranian minister added.

Regarding the impact of recent developments on the relations between Iran and regional countries, he said that Tehran has “deep good relations” with Persian Gulf littoral states.

Salehi once again reiterated that Iran pursues a non-interference policy with respect to regional developments, adding that “The Islamic Republic respects the territorial integrity and national sovereignty of other countries.”

The top Iranian diplomat pointed out that he had “sincere” talks with regional officials in his recent tour of some Arab countries of the region, during which certain misunderstandings were cleared.

On Iran's nuclear program, Salehi said that Iran, as other signatories of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, was entitled to enrich uranium to meet its demands.

Salehi went on to say that Iran enriched uranium to five percent to provide fuel for the Bushehr nuclear power plant.

He further explained that Iran had to enrich uranium to 20 percent for Tehran's Research Reactor, which produces medical isotopes for cancer patients, since potential suppliers failed to provide the Islamic Republic with the required uranium.

The Iranian minister arrived in Beijing on Sunday on a two-day official visit to hold talks with senior Chinese officials and meet with researchers and intellectuals.
