Iran Backs Balkan Stability

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A definite policy of Iran is supporting stability and security in the Balkans, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said, voicing Tehran’s readiness to strengthen ties with Serbia.

In a telephone conversation with his Serbian counterpart on Sunday, Amirabdollahian congratulated Ivica Dacic on the formation of the new Serbian parliament, saying Tehran attaches importance to its ties with Belgrade.

Highlighting Iran’s principled policy of respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other countries, including Serbia, Amirabdollahian elaborated on the policy of Tehran towards the Balkans.

He said the definite policy of Iran is to support the stability and security of the Balkans and to promote coexistence among all ethnic groups and followers of all religions in that region.

Serbia’s top diplomat, for his part, hailed the close interaction between the high-ranking officials of the two countries at different levels.

Dacic said Serbia declares its full solidarity with Iran.

He also slammed the application of double standards and the use of international institutions as a tool for political pressure by some Western governments against independent nations.

The Serbian minister underscored the need for greater solidarity among independent governments in the face of coercive actions.
