Mohammad Javad Zarif quotes

I do not see any reason why Iran and Saudi Arabia should have hostile policies towards each other. We can in fact work together to put an end to miserable conditions of the people in Syria and Yemen and Bahrain and elsewhere in the region.feedback

Rafsanjani's viewpoints were always road-paving for us in the foreign policy field.feedback

We need to find a political solution, which supports the principles of respect of the territory's sovereignty and of Syria's national unity. So we have to accept the reality, which is that the only solution to ending the war is a political solution.feedback

Of course Iran's options are not limited but our hope and our desire and our preference is for the full implementation of the nuclear agreement, which is not bilateral for one side to be able to scrap.feedback

We have told the US and will also put pressure and the EU will do the same too. The US should also make it possible for non-American banks to work with Iran.feedback

This achievement clearly demonstrates that with political will, perseverance, and through multilateral diplomacy, we can solve the most difficult issues and find practical solutions that are effectively implemented.feedback

Happy to see dialog and respect, not threats and impetuousness, swiftly resolved the #sailors episode. Let's learn from this latest example.feedback

We have treated these actions with magnanimity and nobleness but unfortunately our neighbor, Saudi Arabia, did not respond to it properly. The process of provoking tension must be stopped.feedback

We seriously believe that our missile testing has nothing to do with the 2231 resolution, because in the 2231 resolution missiles that are designed for nuclear capabilities are mentioned and none of the Islamic Republic of Iran's missiles are designed for nuclear capabilities.feedback

...The negotiations have ended and next week the UN Security Council will approve a resolution that for the first time in its history will officially recognise the enrichment of nuclear power of a developing country.feedback

We can have the path of confrontation or we can have the path of co-operation, we cannot have a little bit of each.feedback

What they need to do is to facilitate the dialogue among various Yemeni groups and this is what we are prepared to do.feedback

The problem is the need for the Yemenis to be helped in order to talk to each other, to finish this fighting and also to be mindful of the fact that al Qaeda and Daesh are waiting. Not waiting but actually fighting in order to seize control and that have in fact seized control of party of Yemen.feedback

We're still some time away from reaching where we want to be.feedback

We can now begin to draft the final text of the agreement and its attachments using the solutions achieved over the last three days.feedback

The talks have been interesting. Now Washington needs to take a political decision…to end the deadlock…and to find a solution to this crisis and a common way forward.feedback

Our judiciary is independent. And the presidential elections has had very little effect on the judiciary. Of course, we do not get ourselves involved or intervene in the affairs of the judiciary. We would like to see, certainly lower executions in all countries, we would like to see greater respect for human rights in all countries and certainly our human rights record can be improved, but it takes time for this government to have an impact on all aspects of Iranian life.feedback

I have tried to remain very true to what we agreed and not to try to 'spin' it for domestic consumption, that is why I didn't produce any fact sheets. It wasn't an attempt by Iran to win at the expense of the other side because we believe that is not sustainable. And now we have agreed that on February 18 we will meet in Vienna to start working on the difficult part, that is the comprehensive deal.feedback

We don't have a military presence. The Syrian government is a government recognised by the United Nations, has a seat in the United Nations, and Iran has long-standing relations with that government. I believe those who are supporting terrorist groups that are on the UN list of terrorist organisations, those should be accountable for the support that they are providing – the money, the arms – that they are providing those terrorist organisations. I don't see any law against having relations with Syria but Iran does not have armed forces in Syria.feedback

There are sanctions relief. Of course we did not believe from the beginning that these sanctions were legal, because this is our money and there is no international legal instrument that would prevent us from having access to our money. There is some cash that will become available, there are other areas, for instance revenues from petrochemical sales by Iran. So, that amounts to some amount of money, but I am not going to quarrel about the exact dollar figure because it's just the beginning and we will start knowing how much it will come to when it comes to the end of the six months.feedback

They had put a cap on oil exports previously. They agreed not to increase the cap. As I said, these sanctions were illegal to begin with, but we are dealing with a world that is not run by legality. It is a world, unfortunately, where American political muscle and economic muscle usually go to persuade countries and the private sector….feedback

No, it's not. Actually we can take some of this money in cash, and the rest in open letters of credit with whoever we want to purchase. It is not… I don't like to be dictated to and I will never accept anything dictated to me….feedback

It is just the beginning and few haven't signed any contracts….feedback

That will certainly not happen. The Iranian public has a way of expressing its views, and that is through the ballot box. They've done it in the past. If they consider our behaviour to be outside the limits of national interest, they will do it again.feedback

We are not, we are actually sticking to the letter of the agreement. That's why we didn't produce any fact sheets. We believe it is important for us to use this opportunity to build confidence.feedback

The agreement is very clear. There are certain parts of the Iranian nuclear programme that will continue; there are certain parts that … I mean.. the enrichment over five percent, that we have agreed not to continue.feedback

What I have said and what I continue to believe is that the future of Syria is for the Syrian people to determine, and the Syrian people should do it without interference from the outside. Now, Iran is pledging its support for a political outcome, because we believe there is no….feedback

The best guarantee that could provide the assurance for everybody that Iran will never produce nuclear weapons is not limitation on Iran's nuclear potential. The best guarantee against a break out is to establish a type of relationship that it would be foolish to break out from.feedback

In a few weeks maybe before the end of the Gregorian year we may start the first phase. Surely it is impossible to do all the terms of the agreement in one day. The first phase is a six-month period. We are not supposed to do this in too many steps, but some measures will have priority over others.feedback

Even if we succeed this will be the beginning of a very difficult process and always we need to be cautious in dealing with this. So if there's one area that I can agree on with Americans, I can agree on that word of caution.feedback

The tragedy today, two Iranians were victims of it and more and more Lebanese unfortunately than Iranians were victims of this tragedy but that should be a reminder for all of us, that should be an alarm for all of us that we need to deal with this issue and unless we deal with this issue seriously it will engulf all of us.feedback

Maybe one or two of them, mostly one country started to feel that the situation was slipping our of their control. Any solution must include lifting all bilateral and multilateral sanctions as well as the sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council.feedback

I'm not disappointed at all because it was a good meeting and I think that we're all on the same wavelength – and that is important and that gives us the impetus to go forward when we meet again next time.feedback

In the meeting on Thursday morning I had the feeling that the other party also wanted to get a result. The Western powers – the 5+1 as they are called really need to win over the confidence of the Iranian people and this opportunity is now within their reach.feedback

Iran's peaceful nuclear programme should continue, and at the same time the West should be assured that the programme has peaceful purposes and will not be used to make weapons. I call this a win-win proposal.feedback

I'm satisfied with this first step. Now we have to see whether we can match our positive words with serious deeds so that we can move forward.feedback

Of course as we move forward there has to be a removal of sanctions and in the end game there has to be a total lifting of all sanctions and both bilateral sanctions, unilateral sanctions as well as multilateral sanctions and UN sanctions.feedback
