Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani on Thursday said that Iran does not insist on participation in the upcoming international conference on Syria adding that if the Western governments think they can solve the humanitarian crisis in Syria by themselves, they are free to do so.
He said that the Western governments didn’t invite Iran to the previous conference on Syria held in Geneva which brought a failure for them.
Larijani advised the Western governments to refrain from double-standard approach toward Iran and would rather opt for logic and wisdom.
He rejected the claim made by the US president that Iran had been forced to negotiate with the West over its nuclear program under the pressure of sanctions as false imagination.
The Majlis speaker criticized the US administration for language of intimidation and said that a lot of regional problems would have been solved if Obama had opted for language of logic and wisdom instead of the notorious term of ˈˈall the options are on the tableˈ.
Iran believes that the dispute over the Iranian nuclear program can be solved through political dialogue, but, the Western leaders attempted to divert the world public opinion for political objectives, the speaker said.
Larijani made it clear that Iran’s presence at the negotiating table does not mean that a way has been opened for them to pursue their illegitimate demands and avarice.
