IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Aug 17, IRNA -- Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said on Wednesday that the Iranian people expect the western states to fulfill their pledges to implement the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Larijani made the remarks in a meeting with Norway Foreign Minister Børge Brende in Tehran.

Iranian nation is awaiting tangible outcome from implementation of the JCPOA, he said.

The United States has reneged on of their pledges, he said adding that there is no doubt that European countries such as Norway can play significant role to help implement the Joint Compressive Plan of Action.

The Islamic Republic of Iran proved its sincerity and commitment from early stages of talks with G5+1, he said adding that the country is to spare no efforts to resolve the issue through a just and logical approach.

Iran would like to broaden constructive cooperation with European governments such as Norway to help restore stability in the region and help resolve regional crisis such as fight with terrorist groups, he said.

Under which law the Saudi government deems authorized to attack innocent people in Yemen for over one year and continue with carnage of defenseless women and children in indiscriminate bombardment, Larijani said.

Blatant violation of human rights in Bahrain should be condemned, Larijani said.

Such irresponsible measures will leave negative impacts on stability and calmness of the entire region, he said.

Highlighting prominent role of Iran in fight with terrorism in Syria, Iraq and the region, he urged all regional and international forces to deal with menaces of terrorism.

Norway foreign minister, for his part, said that Iran has remained committed to its pledges and Norway is optimistic that the two parties to the nuclear deal will honor their duties, he said.

Norway has no doubt that Iran will continue its relentless efforts to help eradicate Daesh and also help restore stability in Iraq.

'We believe that all ethnical groups play vital role in liberation of Mosul from Daesh and restoring stability to Iraq,' said Norway foreign minister.

After defeat of Daesh in Iraq and effective supports of some countries such as Iran, the grounds could be well-prepared to bring the life of people in the war-torn country to normal, he said.

He also expressed hope that expansion of banking and economic cooperation between Iran and Europe would be materialized under sound implementation of the JCPOA.
