Iran's Foreign Minister in meeting with his Norwegian counterpart said that Tehran is against war and insecurity in the region and has made efforts to create peace in the region.

Iran PressEurope: Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, who traveled to Switzerland on Tuesday to participate in the Davos Summit, met and talked with Norway's Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide on the sidelines of the summit.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, in a meeting with his Norwegian counterpart, said: "Iran does not welcome war and insecurity in the region, and in the past 100 days, it has made many efforts to end the war and Israel's attacks on Gaza and establish peace in the region."

In this meeting, referring to the good talks of the past few days with his Norwegian counterpart, Amir-Abdollahian thanked Norway for its good attention and approach to the conditions of the Gaza Strip and the region and said: "If the root of the crisis in Gaza is well understood, the solution would be very simple."

The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran further pointed out that more than 100 days have passed since the start of the Israeli regime's war against Gaza, and considered the American support for the continuation of the war a big mistake. He added that the Israeli and American regimes insist on continuing the war, the genocide of the Palestinians, and the great destruction in Gaza while all these atrocities have not achieved and will not achieve any results for them.

Amir-Abdollahian also considered the arrival and actions of the resistance forces in the region as a reaction to the crimes of the Israeli regime and only to support the Palestinian nation and the citizens in Gaza, adding: "The root of the crisis is not in the Red Sea and Lebanon and other countries of the region, but rather in the genocide in Gaza and if that volcano is extinguished, there will be peace in other parts of the region too.

Therefore, the US must change its methods and the Israeli regime cannot continue the war without the support of the US. But if the military attacks of the Israeli regime continue, there is a possibility of spreading war across the region."

In the end, the Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran rejected any political solution imposed on the Palestinians and said: "In any political solution for the Palestinian issue, the Palestinian people and groups should be at the center."

In this meeting, Espen Barth Eide also pointed to the very difficult and complicated conditions in Gaza, referring to his recent good talks with his Iranian counterpart and expressing his satisfaction with the continuation of bilateral consultations, and said: "Unfortunately, the conditions in Gaza, Lebanon and the Red Sea is getting worse and we are ready to try to manage and calm the situation.

Appreciating Iran's efforts to help create peace in the region, Norway's foreign minister added that the problems in the region are interrelated and we also think that the conflict in Gaza should end quickly and a ceasefire should be established.
