Iran and Ireland in Dublin on Tuesday stressed the importance of promoting Tehran-Dublin cooperation in all fields.
Foreign Minister Dr Kamal Kharrazi, in a meeting with his Irish counterpart Brian Cowen, pointed to deep-rooted ties between the two states and their differing cultures which nonetheless favor expansion of ties in line with their interests.
Pointing to the recent visit by Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei to Tehran, the Iranian minister said ElBaradei was briefed on Iran`s constructive activities and cooperation with the agency.
Normalization of Tehran-IAEA ties should be on the agenda now and European states should take measures to encourage cooperation relative to Iran`s peaceful use of nuclear technology, he noted.
Kharrazi, assessing the current situation in Iraq, said that it is `disappointing,` adding that `the European Union should play a moreactive role in settling the crisis in this country and power handed over to the people at the earliest."
