IRAN: ‘ Minister Accuses US of Lacking Understanding of ISIL in Interview ‘

#AceWorldNews – IRAN (Tehran) – September 08 – Iran accused the United States on Sunday of not taking the threat from ISIL militants in Iraq and Syria seriously, and charged that US aid had previously helped the Takfiri militants.

“There is still no serious understanding about the threat and they (the United States) have as yet taken no serious action,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in an interview with IRIB on Sunday morning.

 US has not been serious in fighting ISIL which roots in their double standards; the US supported ISIL back in Syria and now they want to fight them in Iraq,” he added, according to Mehr news agency.

The top Iranian diplomat said that there has not been enough and comprehensive understanding of ISIL threat yet, but “the Islamic Republic of Iran was aware of its danger since the beginning of ISIL establishment and Iran president’s WAVE (World Against Violence and Extremism) suggested to the last year UN General Assembly proves the Islamic Republic’s logic regarding such issues.”

He pointed to the Leader’s emphasis on danger of radicalism and said that “we know the ISIL danger and stand besides our Iraqi sisters and brothers to control it but this is dangerous for the whole region and international cooperation is needed to eradicate it.”

#Iran : ” Completion of `Nuclear Deal’ in Six Months” but `Dissenter’s Voice’ their Objection’s”

#AceNewsServices says `Iran Nuclear Deal Possible in Six Months according to – FM

An agreement on Iran’s nuclear program is possible within six months, Reuters quoted Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as saying on Monday.

He added he was not worried about the US Congress trying to impose new sanctions.“With good will we can reach an agreement within six months,” he told the German Council on Foreign Relations. 

(Reuters) – Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Mohammad Zarif said on Monday a final deal with world powers on Tehran’s nuclear program is possible within six months if there is good will and he was not worried about the U.S. Congress trying to impose new sanctions.

U.S. President Barack Obama used his State of the Union address last week to veto any legislation that threatens the talks with Iran. U.S. senators including some of Obama’s Democrats have co-sponsored a bill that would impose new restrictions on Iran if talks on a permanent accord falter.

But Iran has warned that it will walk away from negotiations – raising the risk of conflict in the Middle East – if the bill becomes law. It is now stalled in the Senate.

Zarif was visiting Berlin after meeting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and other members of the six powers negotiating with Iran at the annual Munich Security Conference at the weekend.

Iran reached a landmark preliminary agreement with them in November to halt its most sensitive nuclear operations, winning some relief from sanctions in return. Talks with the six powers about a definitive settlement begin in Vienna on February 18.
