Senior Iranian parliamentary official Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Monday that the Israeli regime is afraid of Japan’s cooperation with Iran, noting that that Japanese PM Shinzo Abe’s visit is not aimed at mediating between US and the Islamic Republic.
“The prime minister of the Zionist regime thinks that he can deter Japanese PM from cooperating with Iran by pointing out his regime’s redlines in the region, since the Zionist lobby is afraid that Japan would join other countries which cooperate with Iran,” Boroujerdi said, referring to Friday’s phone conversation between the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and Abe.
All US pressures against the country are aimed at changing Tehran’s regional policies and undermining the country’s missile power, he said, according to Mehr news agency.
Borojerdi noted meanwhile, that some measures of the US President Donld Trump administration have been adopted due to pressures from the Zionists.
“And more than that, Zionists are afraid that these tensions would ultimately lead to the normalization of ties between Iran and US; but of course this is not possible because we will not talk and interact with them [Americans] due to their violation of international rules.”
On the other hand, the Iranian parliamentary official told Mehr that Abe would discuss US-related topics during his visit to Tehran, but noted that the visit is not aimed at mediating between Iran and US.
“Of course, topics on the US will definitely be on agenda [at the meetings], but the aim of Abe’s visit is not to mediate between Iran and the US,” he stressed.
“Abe’s visit focuses on bilateral relations, and while it is likely that he would discuss some matters related to his recent talks with Trump, the focus of his trip is not about Iran and US relations,” he added.
