Senior Iranian MP Elaborates on Different Areas of Cooperation with Italy

"Economic and trade cooperation, joint fight against terrorism and drug trafficking can be areas of cooperation between Iran and Italy," Boroujerdi said on Friday at the end of his three-day official visit to Italy. During his visit, he held meetings with Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini, as well as chairmen and members of foreign commissions of Italy's both houses of parliament. Elsewhere, the senior Iranian lawmaker said that the US-engineered UN sanctions against Iran have adversely influenced Europe's economy. Boroujerdi also said that Iran has a positive view about Italy's joining the P5+1 because the Iranian officials believe that Rome can play a more active role in the G5+1 -the permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany. Iran and G5+1 attended three rounds of talks in Istanbul, Turkey, late January. The Iranian side was presided by Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) and chief negotiator Saeed Jalili, while European Union's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton heads delegations from six world powers. Speaking to reporters in a press conference in Istanbul after the talks, Jalili said, "We have always stressed that talks can be useful, successful and progressive only when they are based on a common logic." "If you decide to use another instrument instead of common logic, this would result in dictation and not negotiation, and dictation does not deserve a kind of talks based on the nations' cultures." "On the very same basis, we proposed the Istanbul talks in the Geneva meeting because we believed that a majority of talks over international issues can be held on the basis of the Islamic civilization," Jalili said. "Our Geneva agreement included several key points, including talks for cooperation on common points." "This was our agreement in Geneva, which surely inspires everybody's mind with the idea that when cooperation on common points is the agenda of talks, such negotiations should advance and be progressive. When the decision has been made to talk over common points and talk for cooperation, then such talks can certainly be progressive, successful and constructive," he continued. Asked when the talks can be successful, Jalili answered "when the requirements of this common logic are clear. When you speak of cooperation, you must avoid whatever causes confrontation and animosity towards a nation, when you speak of cooperation on common points, you must surely respect the nations' rights". "What has been enshrined in the international rules and regulations in a straightforward manner provides the necessary grounds for talks. I don't think that if you tell the international community and the world that talks should be based on the nations' rights, the world would interpret it as a precondition for talks." "Respect for the nations' rights provides the necessary grounds for negotiations," he added.
