Mottaki: Iran not after making troubles

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 7, IRNA – Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said “Iran was not in troubled relations with anybody” and stressed that Tehran was not after making troubles and causing problems in the world.

Addressing a gathering of instructors and students in Allameh Tabatabaie University on Friday to mark the 30th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, he said Iran advocated righteous and rational views and wanted to scatter them in the democratic world.

Saying that the initial foreign diplomacy adopted by the Late Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini right after the establishment of the Islamic system in Iran targeted the Islamic world, he said by now the whole world was witnessing the restoration of the Late Imam’s ideals.

Referring to the overwhelming reliance of the county on the US in all arenas during the time of Iran’s toppled Pahlavi regime, the foreign minister believed independence was the most valuable achievement of the Late Imam and the Islamic Revolution.

He believed the most prominent characteristics of Iran’s current foreign policy was its adherence to the guidelines of the Late Imam Khomeini.

He said such an approach, based on innovative tactics, rationality and a clearly-defined strategy, has resulted in further defusing of enemies' plots.

Commenting on the motto of change advocated by the US president, Barack Obama, Mottaki said the West was trying to fight the Islamic Revolution by proposing regime change and “change in tone” for it but realities have forced it now to admit that it is the one that is in urgent need of change.

Turning to the issue of the Zionist regime and the relentless support of the West for it, the foreign minister noted that in the past six decades since the making of the Zionist regime, the United Nations, Britain and other countries all rushed to the scene to support the Zionists whenever it attacked one of its neighboring countries while the past two wars in Lebanon and Gaza crushed the Zionist Regime’s image as “undefeatable”.
