European Parliament stances damaged Iran-EU ties in past yrs

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson said Wednesday that the anti-Iran positions of the European Parliament in the past year have greatly damaged Iran's relations with the European Union.

Nasser Kan'ani reacted Wednesday to the anti-Iran statements of the President of the European Parliament and some representatives of the European Union in Tuesday's session.

Criticizing that these positions are in line with the failed policy towards the realities of Iranian society and people, he added that it reflects their confusion in the face of the stability, rationality, and authority of Iran.

Adopting interventionist logic and resorting to ineffective political-propaganda pressure, instead of cooperating with Iran based on mutual respect and common interests, reveals the lack of seriousness and sincerity of some European actors in their engagement with Iran, he continued.

He further stated that the baseless accusations against Iran regarding certain foreign nationals and prisoners who have been convicted based on solid evidence suggest that certain EU officials insist on maintaining confrontational positions against the people and government of Iran.

This approach contradicts what is expressed by EU officials regarding interaction and dialogue with Iran, he noted. 

The anti-Iran positions of the European Parliament in the past year have greatly damaged Iran's relations with the European Union, he said, expressing hope that these individuals will soon come to understand the realities and work towards correcting and compensating for these incorrect positions.

Kan'ani emphasized that it is strongly expected from the European Union not to allow certain elements within the organization to make unsubstantiated, unconstructive, and contradictory statements that undermine the efforts to maintain communication and dialogue with Iran.
