By: Vahid Jafarian

Iran’s President approach to foreign policy issues has been originally  based on ‘constructive interaction’ with the world far from any unnecessary conflict with world community including western countries.

Such a constructive approach in the framework of ‘dignity, wisdom, and expediency’ has been adopted by Iran’s foreign policy apparatus since president Hassan Rouhani took office in 2013 and  striking a deal with P5+1 after intensive talks over years is one of the successes of this constructive approach.

After resolving the nuclear issue, many officials and businessmen all over the world now are willing to travel to Iran, developing their diplomatic and economic relationships with the country..

A high-ranking German trade delegation traveled to Iran last week  to discuss developing economic and trade ties and today, on the first visit to Iran for 12 years by a French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, arrived in Tehran.

Fabius’s trip comes after a landmark nuclear deal between major powers and Tehran under which Western sanctions are to be lifted in exchange for limits on Iran’s nuclear program.

The French foreign minister’s current visit to Tehran and his talks with senior Iranian officials is fully in line with Iran’s constructive cooperation with the world based on mutual respect; A policy which is strengthened by the nuclear deal between Iran and P5+1.

Despite France’s misconduct towards Iranians over last years, the decision to embrace Fabius can be regarded as Iran’s nobility and good faith to develop its relationships with all countries even western belligerent ones.

Moreover, French foreign minister’s visit to Tehran has indicated that the French regret for their past hostile behaviors such as obstructing nuclear talks. Even, Fabius himself acknowledged that France played “bad cop” during nuclear talks between Iran and P5+1. He also hoped that Iran would not punish French companies due to France obstruction of nuclear talks.

Finally, Iranians believe, based on Islamic teachings, that “repel evil with good in order to make your sworn enemies close as your friends.”
