Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said upon arrival in the French capital, Paris, that Tehran has opened a new chapter in its relations with Europe.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is trying to deepen Iran-France relations in line with the interests of the two nations and the states, and this trip is a major step in this regard,” Rouhani said.
The Iranian President said that Tehran and Paris must initiate close and widespread ties to make up for the losses caused by the recently removed “cruel and unjust” sanctions which were imposed on Iran.
Rouhani noted that Tehran and Paris can cooperate to help solve regional and international problems and take effective measures to promote peace and stability throughout the world.
President Rouhani highlighted that the threat of dangerous terrorist groups who are wreaking havoc across the globe can only be neutralized through closer international and multilateral ties.
The visiting president also offered condolences over the Paris attacks which claimed the lives of 130 people in November, saying, “These terrorist actions show that terrorism is a dangerous pandemic that threatens the whole world, including European cities.”
