Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi said reports that Saudi Arabia was attempting to develop a domestic nuclear power industry amount to "a comedy," at his weekly press conference from Tehran on Monday.

SOT, Bahram Ghasemi, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Farsi): “We have said many times and I repeat it seriously that we are not sending any weapons to Yemen and what the Islamic Republic of Iran wants is to stop the aggression by Saudi Arabia and the coalition led by Saudi Arabia that today means Yemen is facing a human disaster and a huge crisis.”

SOT, Bahram Ghasemi, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Farsi): “I think that we should consider [the nuclear programme of Saudi Arabia] as a comedy because Saudi Arabia doesn’t have the necessary infrastructure, technical capabilities, and manpower and I think it is not possible to buy everything throughout the world only with money and dollars and to maintain it.”

SOT, Bahram Ghasemi, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Farsi): “We hope that today’s resolution [United Nations Security Council about Syria] could be carried out and have a suitable atmosphere in order to provide humanitarian aid and help all the different regions of Syria.”

SOT, Bahram Ghasemi, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Farsi): “We will have no negotiations with other countries about the issues of Iran’s regional policies. We are an independent country [and] we ourselves make decisions, here in Tehran, about our regional policies, our relationships between our neighbors and the countries around us and other countries throughout the world.”

SOT, Bahram Ghasemi, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Farsi): “The presence of Russia in other parts of the region and the cooperation, that Iran can have with Russia in order to help the peace and stability and security, can be effective from Iran’s point of view and also from Moscow’s.”

SOT, Bahram Ghasemi, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Farsi): “[If the US exits from JCPOA] the Islamic Republic of Iran, with all of its power and ability, will give the necessary and suitable answer to these kinds of actions by the US at the right time.”

SOT, Bahram Ghasemi, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Farsi): “By the invitation of Recep Tayyip Erdogan three presidents [Iran, Syria, and Turkey] will meet each other in Istanbul in May and before this I think the foreign ministers of those three countries [Iran, Syria and Turkey] will meet [to talk about Syria].”
