Iran opening new chapter in relations with Australia

 

 
Following a meeting and a luncheon with Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in Canberra on Monday, Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif joined her in a press conference and answered the media questions.
 
Zarif maintained that the topics of discussion with his Australian counterpart revolved around expansion of relations between the two countries in the areas of trade, investment, technology and economy, adding other issues such as fight against violence, extremism and organized crimes also came up during the meeting.
 
“Iran and Australia share common views on fighting terrorism in Syria and Yemen and we should cooperate with one another in countering ISIL,” said Zarif.
 
The Iranian top diplomat said the Islamic Republic is constantly questioned about its military programs despite the fact that Iran’s military doctrine is strictly ‘defensive’.
 
“We are not at war with any countries and if any form of confrontation occurs, we will respond by defending our sovereignty,” said Zarif, adding Iran’s military programs are not illegal and do not even fall within the purview of 2231 and the nuclear agreement.
