Iran FM slams US, Europe’s counterproductive approach to recent riots

Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian on Thursday criticized the unconstructive approach of the US and some European countries to the recent riots in Iran.

Amirabdollahian made the remarks in a phone conversation with his Emirati counterpart Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan where the two sides discussed the latest developments in bilateral and international issues.

Amirabdollahian said that Iran is interested in developing and bolstering ties with neighboring countries, including the UAE.

He announced Tehran's readiness to hold a joint meeting of businessmen from Iran and the UAE.

Referring to the counterproductive approach of the US and some European countries to the recent riots in Iran, Amirabdollahian strongly criticized them for the political and instrumental abuses of international institutions such as human rights.

Sultan Al Nahyan, for his part, called for stable and active relations between Iran and the UAE.

He expressed his country’s readiness to hold joint commission meetings plus the committee of businessmen of Iran and the UAE as well as enhance mutual ties.

Stressing the need for human rights institutions not to follow a political approach, he called for the restoration of the nuclear deal and the elimination of technical disputes in this regard, calling it in the interests of all sides.
