Iran FM hopes for better ties with France under Hollande (Press TV)

Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has expressed hope that the election of Francois Hollande will lead to the expansion of Tehran-Paris relations.



Salehi congratulated France on the victory of Hollande and expressed hope that the President-elect would adopt a new approach toward the expansion of bilateral relations in all aspects and based on mutual respect.


He made the remarks in a meeting with former French Socialist Prime Minister Michel Rocard on Saturday. Rocard arrived in Iran on Saturday to meet with a number of Iranian officials, including Foreign Minister Salehi.


The top Iranian diplomat highlighted Iran's policy to protect its inalienable nuclear rights in line with international law and under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.


He called for cooperation on Iran's nuclear program based on good will and mutual trust to help come up with a solution that will be accepted by both sides.


He also expressed hope the upcoming Iran-P5+1 talks in Baghdad would progress in an atmosphere of mutual respect and good will.


The former French prime minister for his part underlined Iran's significant status and expressed hope that an atmosphere of mutual respect would be created between Iran and European countries so that any possible issues would be resolved in line with both sides’ interests and the reinforcement of global and regional peace and stability.


On Sunday, Hollande was elected in the French run-off presidential election to become the first Socialist politician to win the presidential election after 17 years of right-wing dominance over the country’s politics.


The socialists’ rise to the Elysée Palace comes as France, under former president Nicolas Sarkozy, has been one of the major US allies to spearhead baseless allegations against Iran's nuclear energy program and advocate tough sanctions against Tehran.

Rocard en Iran : pourquoi l'UMP a quelques raisons de s'inquiéter ... (George Malbrunot)


M. Copé monte au créneau, c’est sans doute qu’il a quelques raisons de penser

que l’approche française du dossier iranien pourrait - sur la forme - changer justement.

Paris pourrait ne plus être considéré par ses alliés comme plus néoconservateur

que Washington face à Téhéran.


en tout cas ce qu’écrivaient récemment deux spécialistes américains du dossier

iranien, Reza Marashi, ancien du Département d’Etat, et Trita Parsi, président

du Conseil national américano-iranien. Je vous soumets leur article paru dans

le Washington Post.
