CAIRO, November (ITAR-TASS). Iran’s success at the talks with the Sextet of negotiating countries - five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany - over its national nuclear program has become possible thanks to the huge staying power of its people and leadership, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Wednesday in a telephone conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
“The success of the Islamic Republic in reaching this agreement became possible thanks to the staying power of the Iranian people and defense of its rights, as well as the leadership’s position that had been firm from the very beginning and that had proceeded from the principle of safeguarding Iran’s sovereignty and independent decisions-making,” he said.
“The accords reached by Iran in Geneva consolidate its positions at the regional level, as well as in the international arena,” Assad said.
He expressed the confidence that Teheran’s actions reaffirm the developing countries’ rights to develop their own civilian nuclear power production.
