Chairman of the Defence, Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Information Commission of the People's Representative Council of Indonesia, Abdul Kharis Almasyhari, and a number of the commission’s members had a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araqchi in Tehran.
In the Wednesday meeting, Araqchi welcomed the expansion of relations with Indonesia in all fields, explicated the Islamic Republic of Iran’s defence policy, and announced that the reinforcement of Iran’s defence capabilities is for deterrence, and is not against any other country.
“In its modern history, Iran has not started any war, and will not do so hereafter either. However, it would not have the slightest hesitation in defending itself, and will respond to any aggressor immediately and crushingly.”
On Iran’s peaceful nuclear program and the US’ baseless allegations, the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister said, “According to the fatwa (religious edict) of the Supreme Leader, we deem any kind of non-peaceful use of nuclear energy haram (forbidden) and rejected, but we have locally developed this technology within the framework of a peaceful program, with the capabilities of our own scientists.”
Araqchi also emphasized that the US’ cruel sanctions against the Iranian nation are illegal and inhumane in nature, noting, however, that Iran is determined to turn them into an opportunity for transforming the national economy.
For his part, chairman of the Indonesian parliamentary commission lauded Iran’s self-confidence and independence, stressed the need for the enhancement of parliamentary cooperation between the two countries, and voiced Indonesia’s readiness for cooperation with Iran in all fields, including the fight against extremism and terrorism.
