In reaction to the statement issued at the 156th meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC), Kanaani reiterated the regional strategy and principled policy of the Islamic Republic on boosting and deepening of ties with the countries of the PGCC and the development of the principle of neighborliness.

The official called the regional developments in recent months promising and within the framework of the interests of all the countries in the region.

Regional states have a collective responsibility in promoting the interests of the region, he said, adding that Iran has always supported the dialogue and cooperation of the Persian Gulf countries as regional partners.
