Foreign Minister said here on Thursday that "we are ready for reaching a good, strong, and sustainable agreement, if the US acts rationally, without breaching Iran’s redlines."

Iran PressMiddle East: Hossein Amir-Abdollahian was speaking in a joint press conference with his Lebanese counterpart in Beirut.

"We believe instead of playing with the time, playing with the words, and wasting time, the American side should act rationally and adopt an appropriate approach,” said Amir-Abdollahian.

He said that if an agreement is reached the entire regional countries will benefit from it.

“On termination of sanctions, we are still quite close to the end line,” added the Iranian foreign minister.

Turning to the lingering Palestinian dilemma, Amir-Abdollahian said: "While considering the resistance option as the only right way towards the establishment of a solid Palestinian government, we believe holding a referendum in which the entire original residents of Palestine, including the Muslims, the Jews, and the Christians will vote directly, can draw the future of Palestine."

Iran to construct two power plants in Lebanon

The Iranian top diplomat said that he has spoken to Bou Habib on regional developments, including the Iranian-Saudi dialogues, adding: "We still welcome naturalizing full diplomatic ties with Saudi Arabia."

He also referred to the initial agreement with the Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati on solving Lebanon’s power shortage by the construction of two power plants in Lebanon.

“We also offered proposals to Lebanon for overcoming the tough current economic problems, which drew the attention of the Lebanese officials and will be further surveyed and discussed bilaterally,” added Amir-Abdollahian.
