Imam sought to resolve world issues through dialogue

Imam Khomeini’s approach towards establishing relations towards other countries was too all-inclusive and comprehensive. 

The founder of the Islamic Republic wanted to maintain deep and meaningful ties with nations along with their governments.

he great Imam did not only suffice to establishing diplomatic relations with the governments, but maintain direct cultural ties with the masses and communities. 

The great Imam had drawn basic principles and guidelines of Iran's foreign policy by expanding cultural, economic and political ties with nations and masses.

By following footsteps of founder of the Islamic Republic, all employees, officials and diplomats have been recommended to do their best to expand international relations with other governments and nations at all levels, the spokeswoman emphasized. 

From Imam's viewpoints, establishing ties with nations would not be meant disregarding of governments, or improving relations with government shouldn't result in ignoring nations.

The developments come as Iran has concluded talks in a successful manner with the world countries over its peaceful nuclear energy program. Imam was great supporter of launching dialogue between nations to resolve all crisis and conflicts, disputes engulf the world

Meanwhile, leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has expressed gratitude to the Iranian nuclear negotiating team for its efforts in nuclear talks with the P5+1 group of countries.

The Leader made the comments in a meeting with President Hassan Rouhani and his Cabinet on Tuesday, the day Iran and six world powers reached a conclusion to intensive nuclear talks.

Rouhani, for his part, thanked Ayatollah Khamenei for supporting the Iranian nuclear negotiating team of his administration.

The president expressed hope that the nuclear conclusion reached in Vienna would prepare the ground for relieving pressure on Iran and disproving unfounded allegations fabricated by Iran’s enemies, and would also contribute to national progress.

After 18 days of marathon talks in the Austrian capital of Vienna, Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers - the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany - reached a conclusion on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which will put limits on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the removal of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

The 159-page conclusion will be presented to the Security Council, which will adopt a resolution in seven to 10 days making the JCPOA an official document.

Rouhani said that the expansion of close ties with neighboring countries and the continuation of nuclear negotiations were among his administration’s achievements in foreign policy.

“Under circumstances where the [Middle East] region is engulfed by chaos and terrorism, the Islamic Republic of Iran supports regional countries which are grappling with the scourge of terrorism and will continue on this path,” he said.

Speaking in a televised address on Tuesday after the conclusion of talks between Iran and the P5+1, Rouhani said Iran managed to achieve all four objectives it was seeking throughout intensive nuclear talks with the six powers.

"We were following four objectives in these negotiations. As part of today's agreement and under this Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, all the four objectives have been achieved," Rouhani said.

He enumerated the objectives as Iran's ability to go ahead with its nuclear activities, lifting of "cruel and inhumane sanctions," annulment of all "illegal" sanctions adopted by the UN Security Council against Iran and the withdrawal of Iran's nuclear dossier from the Security Council.
