Iran stresses nuclear disarmament: Kharrazi

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 31, IRNA -- Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi said here 
Saturday that Iran always stresses making the world free from nuclear 
weapons. 
Kharrazi made the remarks at Mehrabad International Airport as he 
talked to reporters upon his arrival from Geneva`s Disarmament 
Conference. 
Iran considers nuclear disarmament in the countries which have 
such weapons as the final solution to make the world free from nuclear
weapons, Kharrazi said. 
Since Iran is against nuclear weapons, it uses appropriate 
opportunities to express its stance on opposition to these weapons, he
added. 
He said no declaration has been issued during the conference in 
Geneva since it is a permanent conference, adding the declaration 
would be issued at the UN General Assembly. 
On the sidelines of the conference, a meeting was held with the 
Brazilian foreign minister, Kharrazi said, noting Brazil is among 
industrial and advanced countries and the two countries can enjoy good
cooperation in various economic, political and cultural fields. 
Kharrazi stressed that the release of Palestinian and Lebanese 
prisoners was a victory for the Islamic World, Hizbollah and Lebanon. 
The Lebanese people and the whole region respect Hizbollah and 
Muslims attach special importance to it, he said, adding Hizbollah 
guerrillas forced the Zionist occupiers to leave south of Lebanon and 
freed the region through their resistance. 
He also expressed hope that the fate of four captured Iranian 
diplomats in Lebanon would be cleared in the near future.
