Speaking at a weekly press conference on Monday, Kanaani said, “As you know, Foreign Ministers of Iran and Egypt held talks on the sidelines of the Baghdad 2 summit. The negotiations were positive and full of interest”.
“Also, other negotiations have been recently held at bilateral levels as well as joint consular issues of the two countries,” he added.
“At the same time, the government of Iraq and especially the Prime Minister of this country announced that Iraq is ready to assist in the formation of dialogues between the authorities of Iran and Egypt. Iran welcomes any positive developments in Iran-Egypt relations,” he continued.
He then read the statement of Iranian Foreign Ministry on the commemoration of the third anniversary of the assassination of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.
Kanaani stressed that Iran will continue to pursue a legal case against individuals and entities involved in the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani until a final redress is granted.
Pointing to the negotiations on reviving the JCPOA deal and lifting anti-Iran sanctions, Kanaani once again emphasized that the ball is in the court of the western side.
Calling on the western parties of the JCPOA to take the necessary political decisions for finalizing the deal, the spokesman said that if the western parties think that they can get more concessions in the negotiations with political pressure, they are definitely wrong.
He also rejected the use of Iran-made drones in the Ukraine war and stressed that Iran is not a party to the war in Kyiv.
Kanaani once again urged Ukraine to stop making delusive accusations against Iran.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Kanaani referred to the Flight 752 tragedy and said that the Iranian foreign ministry has received two notes through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine from the four countries of Ukraine, Canada, Sweden, and the UK regarding this issue. The Iranian foreign ministry is currently investigating this matter, he added.
Iran has always emphasized pursuing the case properly and has taken extensive measures in accordance with international obligations and domestic laws, the spokesman said, adding, “Iran condemns any political abuse of this issue.”
