The spokesman for the Iranian Government said here on Tuesday that the talks on the agreement continue and the other side should let go of its excessive demands as the path taken has been constructive.

The Islamic Republic has not left and will not leave the talks, Ali Bahadori Jahromi told reporters in Tehran.

About the issues followed during the talks, the spokesman said they include giving necessary guarantees, removing the sanctions, and putting aside political claims about Safeguards Agreements.

Bahadori Jahromi also announced on Tuesday that efforts have been made to facilitate Arbaeen pilgrims’ visit to Iraq through land borders and flights.

Iran’s six land borders with Iraq are active for this purpose, the spokesman told reporters in Tehran.

Also, the government has tried to launch flights to Iraq from ten Iranian airports, he added.

The spokesman further underlined that the Tehran-Karbala railroad has started work a few days ago.

Arbaeen which falls on September 17  this year is a mourning ritual observed by Shia Muslims worldwide marking the 40th day after the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (AS) (the third Shia Imam and the grandson of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH]).

Millions of Shia Muslims from across the world walk tens of kilometers to get to the holy shrine of Imam Hussain (AS) in Karbala on Arbaeen Day.
