Referring to the recent incident in Iran, Afghanistan borders, Iran's foreign minister said that we gave a written note to them, although we are well aware of the situation in Afghanistan and the fact the governing body does not have enough control over the borders.

He called Israel the cause of insecurity and instability in the region and added: "The act of some Arab countries in normalizing ties with the Israeli Regime is not beneficial for the region."

The Foreign minister expressed hope that Iran-Syria presidents will meet soon.

Iran’s Foreign minister also said: "Reaching a temporary agreement in nuclear talks is unsuitable for Iran; and tehran must benefit from all economic advantages of lifting sanctions."

Amir-Abdollahian noted: "Iran attended this round of talks with strong will and creativity. A few days ago, I told Josep Borrell that the west must have creativity, goodwill, and a plan to lift sanctions since you were eager to talk."

Iran's Foreign minister noted that Iran's new government aims to lift and return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Amir-Abdollahian stated that three European countries did not have eye-catching creativity, and they were seeking to evaluate Iran rather than offering solutions.

"Despite China and Russia's cooperation with Iran, E3 could not offer an operational plan; general and ambiguous talks will not solve the problem," pointed out the minister.

Amir-Abdollahian added: "If you are worried about Iran's nuclear program, we, in turn, are worried about the lifting of sanctions by you."

Referring to some media's efforts to show that Iran enriched Uranium to 90%, the foreign minister clarified that in his phone call with Josep Borrell, he emphasized that this is not true.

Amir-Abollahian also explained some claims that say Iran wants something more than JCPOA and said that whatever Iran has offered in texts and Documents has been according to JCPOA.

He also noted that if the Americans do not return to JCPOA, it means that they do not want negotiations to have results and meet the Israeli Regime’s benefits.

“All countries have the right to defend themselves and have missiles,” he said.
