Rouhani declared readiness for talks with the EU on regional security

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced the readiness of the Iranian side to negotiate with the European Union on regional security issues.

According to the website of the Iranian president, Rouhani said this during a meeting with Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok.

“We are fully prepared to discuss regional security issues with Europe”, – the Iranian leader said.

At the same time, he noted that regional security should be provided by the countries of the region itself, and the presence of foreign forces in the Persian Gulf only harms the situation.

Earlier, Rouhani announced Tehran’s readiness to normalize relations with Saudi Arabia.
