Iran, Secure Energy Supplier to Europe

“Iran can be a secure transit route and energy supplier to Europe through this short and appropriate passage,” said Salehi in a meeting with Slovenian Foreign Minister Samuel Zbogar in the Slovenian capital city of Ljubljana on Monday.

Salehi lauded the growing ties between Iran and Slovenia and reiterated the significance of setting the ground for a long-term bilateral cooperation, IRNA reported.

He stated that both countries enjoy great potential that should be built on to advance national interests and implement joint projects.

The Iranian minister expressed the country's readiness to bolster cooperation with Slovenia without limitations in line with interests of both countries as well as other regional nations.

Zbogar, for his part, pointed to Iran's rich culture and civilization and said Slovenia is interested in the expansion of ties with Iran in various fields.

He added that Ljubljana pursues the strategy to increase trade and economic interactions with Tehran.

The Iranian and Slovenian foreign ministers also exchanged views on Iran's nuclear program and emphasized that negotiations would be the “most appropriate” way to resolve the remaining issues in this regard.

Salehi censured the selective attitude and dual standards of the West, particularly the US, on Iran's nuclear activities.

Meanwhile, addressing reporters at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia (CCIS) earlier on Monday, the Iranian minister said sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council would not cripple Iran.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is a stable, secure and progressive country and UN Security Council sanctions have had no effects on Iran's progress,” he stated.

The US and its allies accuse Iran, with no evidence, of pursuing a military nuclear program and have used such pretext to pressure the UN Security Council to impose a fourth round of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Iran insists that as a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency and a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has a right to use the peaceful applications of nuclear energy for electricity generation and medical research.
