Ashkhabad, Dec 10, IRNA
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said here Monday that Tehran welcomes certain country's revision of policy after Iran got clear health bill from International Atomic Energy Agency on November 15.

"The report of the US intelligence organizations revealed many realities. Therefore, the report may be successful in convincing the parties, which intentionally or unintentionally had denied peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear activities, to change their wrong policies," Mottaki told the meeting of the UN Regional Center for Preventive Diplomacy in Central Asia.

He said Iran is committed to its liabilities and will continue to have constructive cooperation with regional states or the UN.

"Iran has always had positive engagement and constructive cooperation to solve regional problems and crises," he added.

Elsewhere in his address, the minister said Iran strongly supports political process in Iraq despite wrong policies of foreign forces in dealing with basic rights of the Iraqi people.

As for Lebanon, he said that Iran has been supporting different wings in the presidential election.

He said such problems as terrorism, extremism, drugs and organized crimes are threatening the region, which can not be uprooted unless through strong regional and even global cooperation.

He noted that trans-regional power's intervention in different regions worldwide and efforts to deprive countries of their legal rights are among factors escalating tension and insecurity.

The minister said preventive diplomacy is solution to global problems through partnership of all members of the international community.
