Tehran (IP) - Iran's Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf called the US unilateral policy a serious threat to international peace and security and stressed the need for regional and international cooperation to counter these 'irrational actions'.

Iran Press/Iran News: In a meeting with China's ambassador to Iran Chang Hua, Ghalibaf said: "Today, countries around the world, nationally, regionally, and internationally face the arrogant unilateral policies of the United States and its undesirable effects on the rights of nations."

The Speaker of the Iranian parliament also strongly condemned the interference of the United States and various other countries in China's internal domestic affairs.

He also thanked the Chinese government for its clear and unequivocal opposition to the International Atomic Energy Agency's resolution against Iran.

Expressing hope that the cooperation between the two countries will continue and be realized more quickly, Ghalibaf said: "We have witnessed many times the interventions of the Trump administration against the sovereignty and independence of countries, including Iran and China and some international issues such as the environment and destructive weapons. In this regard, regional and international cooperation is an inevitable necessity."

"As China resolutely supports Iran's sovereignty and independence and opposes unilateral US sanctions, the two countries must work together," the Chinese ambassador said for his part, noting that "China is keen on strengthening ties with Iran and supporting each other on important issues and common interest."

"For years, Western countries, especially the United States, have put pressure on Iran and China under the pretext of human rights, but we have always been together and have expressed disgust with the interference of others and unilateralism," the Chinese ambassador said.
