IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tokyo, Dec 22, IRNA -- Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili said in Tokyo on Tuesday that Iran and Japan have common stance on disarmament and Non-Proliferation Treaty.

He said that Iran-Japan common stance serves as a suitable ground to address the prime needs of the global community.

Jalili told Japanese prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama, that Iran and Japan are two major powers in two Asian poles, having historical responsibility to upgrade position of the continent in the field of global relations.

He said that undoubtedly, as two influential countries on the international issues, Iran and Japan should develop cooperation inside and outside the Asian continent.

He added that dispatch of new forces to Afghanistan means repetition of former failed policy.

Hatoyama said for his part that Tokyo needs contribution of Iran, as an influential state, to reconstruction of Afghanistan.
