Ali Motahari Appreciates U.S. Government Delaying Sanctions
Ali Motahari, a Member of Iranian Parliament, says the new policy of U.S. government over Iran’s nuclear case is encouraging and promising. Recently, U.S. government decided to delay imposing new sanctions on Iran’s economy.
“By taking these kinds of measures, U.S. government has sent a clear message to Iranian nation. Accordingly, we need to reward the United States by holding direct talks with the officials of Western governments over Islamic Republic’s nuclear case.” Ali Motahari, a conservative Iranian MP, said on Sunday.
“In his most recent speech, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamanei has noted that Islamic Republic doesn’t ban Iranian government from negotiating with American officials. In my opinion, Iran and U.S. can even improve their mutual ties according to Supreme Leader’s guidelines and comments.” Ali Motahari added.
Currently, there are no formal and official ties between Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States.
“Unfortunately, the wrong policies pursued by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have led to current complicated conditions for Islamic Republic.” Motahari declared. He has already tried to summon Ahmadinejad to parliament to face questioning and possible impeachment.
Ali Motahari also went on to mention the recent proposal posed by Jack Straw about re-establishing ties between Iran and U.K. “Although he doesn’t have any role in UK government, we need to take his offer and comments serious. The relations between Iran and UK should be repaired in order to save the interests of both countries in the Middle East region.”
Following the raid of Iranian students to the embassy of UK in Tehran, Iran and UK cut their ties. Consequently, England ordered Islamic Republic to evacuate its embassies and consulates in the soil of UK.
