Tehran, April 22, IRNA
Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said that Iran's Arab neighboring states have been briefed on the country's nuclear activities for peaceful purposes and that they do not threaten any country.

Hosseini made the statement at this week's press briefing in response to a question about the concern of Arab states over Iran's nuclear activities.

He underlined that Iran's nuclear programs are completely peaceful, adding that the doubts on the issue created in the regional countries are quite baseless.

"The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has also confirmed that there is no deviation from peaceful path in the country's nuclear activities.

"Meanwhile, we have declared our readiness to cooperate with all world countries in the nuclear field," said the spokesman.

Replying to a question about the mediation of some regional Arab states for establishment of Iran-US ties, he said that Iran has repeatedly declared that showing good will and correction of the past approaches will provide a new opportunity for revising the type of relations.

About Iran's stance on the remarks of Jordan's King Abdullah II that Israel's enemies were those of Jordan, he said that it has been severely denied by the Royal Court of Jordan and referred to it as the approach of Zionists and their media.
