IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Nov 7, IRNA -- President Hassan Rouhani said in his Saturday evening meeting with EP Speaker Martin Schulz that Western side's abiding by its commitment and termination of sanctions should be complete, on time, and precise according to the Vienna agreement reached in July.

'Iran has always been quite faithful to all its international commitments, including the nuclear Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and acted accordingly, which is why we also expect the other side to remain fully committed to its commitments and implement them fully, on time and precisely,' President Rouhani said.

President Rouhani also said that interactions with those nations that have different cultures are quite necessary for strengthening international relations.

European Parliament Speaker Martin Schulz, too, expressing delight to meet the Iranian president, said that the emerged golden opportunity for restructuring Iran-EU relations should be used optimally.

Iran is a permanent stabilizing factor in a region in which instability abounds, and as result terrorism in Syria which has led to an influx of refugees to Europe, and now our main shared objective is campaign aimed at uprooting Daesh.

Schulz, meanwhile, considered expansion of scientific and cultural relations between Iran and the EU as a necessity, side by side with the expansion of political and economic ties, stressing that the EU asks for expansion of bilateral and international relations with Tehran.
