Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Marzieh Afkham, has said that her country is ready to hold “fresh, sincere and profound” talks with all neighbouring and Muslim countries.
The official Iranian news agency IRNA quoted Afkham as saying on Wednesday that in the past two years, “Iran has proved that it adopts dialogue as a principle and it attaches significant importance to regional and international peace and stability,” and that it also regards “the promotion of stability and cooperation and the reduction of chaos” in the region as a priority.
“Afkham voiced Iran’s readiness for fresh, sincere and profound dialogue with all regional and Muslim countries,” IRNA added.
On the positive change in Iranian-British relations, Afkham said that “a new chapter” has begun in the two countries’ relations, and that Tehran will consider the possibility of upgrading bilateral relations with the UK in due time when conditions are appropriate.
Iranian sources said earlier this week that there are ongoing efforts to arrange a meeting between Iran and the GCC states during the UN General Assembly meetings next month. The GCC countries have not issued any official confirmation in this regard.
