Iran does not want war, but will defend itself from attack – Rouhani
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that his country was not interested in starting a military conflict, but insisted it would defend itself from foreign aggression.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday after a meeting in Tehran with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Rouhani warned against any attack on the Islamic Republic.

“Iran will never initiate a war but will give a crushing response to any aggression,” Rouhani said at a joint news conference alongside the Japanese PM.

Despite increasingly poor relations with Washington, however, the president said that Iran would do its best to stay within the 2015 nuclear pact signed with world powers, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“Iran will remain committed to the deal, which is important for the security of the region and the world,” he said, adding “Tehran and Tokyo both oppose nuclear weapons.”

The president also indicated that Japan would like to continue buying Iranian oil, which is currently penalized by several layers of US sanctions, although it is unclear whether Japan intends to go forward with the purchases.

After his meeting with Rouhani, PM Abe said he hoped to play a role in mediating tensions between Tehran and Washington, stating that peace and stability in the Middle East is “indispensable” for global prosperity.

“Amid rising tension, it is essential for Iran to play a constructive role in strengthening peace and stability in the Middle East, so that this region won't be destabilized further or accidental clashes won't happen,” Abe told reporters.

Abe previously said that Japan “wants to do all that it can” to help Iran and the US improve relations, an idea that may have been hatched in meetings with US President Donald Trump in late May. Abe’s offer came immediately after the two leaders met.

Reacting to Wednesday’s meeting in Tehran, President Trump lobbed critiques from the White House, telling reporters that Iran was “in chaos, they’ve got a lot of problems.”

In recent months, the Trump administration has embarked on another so-called “maximum pressure campaign” intended to convince Iran to relitigate the nuclear deal, which Washington unilaterally decided to scrap last year. While the other signatories, including Iran, remain within the deal, Washington’s participation is seen as vital, as Iran’s major concern is US sanctions relief.

Hostile rhetoric on both sides, new crippling sanctions imposed on Iran’s economy and provocative deployments of US military assets in the Persian Gulf have stoked concerns about an impending war, but Iran’s response has so far been subdued. Still, the Iranian leadership is hesitant to accept new talks after Washington so readily threw away months of arduous negotiations that preceded the 2015 deal.

ザリーフ外相が出迎え! もったいない。当初4日間の訪問と発表していたが、いつの間にか3日間、さらに2日間へ短縮。「米国とイランを仲介する」という嘘が通用しなくなったから? かっこ悪。

Iranian FM: Talks with Japanese PM to Focus on JCPOA
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif underlined on Monday that the main issue to be raised in his talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is realities of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and the world powers).

Zarif said Iran would hold talks with the Japanese officials as Tehran is not concerned about negotiations with the friendly countries.

He added that his talks with the Japanese premier would focus on realities of the July 2015 nuclear deal from which the US withdrew unilaterally on May 8, 2018.

Elaborating on prospects of Iran's foreign policy in light of the current international and regional situation, Zarif said the country's foreign policy continued its logical and reasonable path.

Abe will pay an official visit to Iran in mid-June to discuss bilateral relations, regional and international developments with senior Iranian officials, media sources announced.

Japanese government officially announced that Abe would arrive in Tehran on June 12 and his official visit would last three days.

The Japanese premier's visit to Tehran will be the first of its kind by a Japanese prime minister over past forty years.

Abe is scheduled to meet with Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani during his three-day visit to Tehran.

Senior MP: Israel Worried about Iran-Japan Good Ties
TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior member of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who has protested at his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe's upcoming visit to Iran is worried about the close relations between Tehran and Tokyo.

"All the US pressures on Iran aims to force Iran to change its regional policies and missile defense on the flimsy pretext of nuclear bombs," Alaeddin Borujerdi said.

He noted that a part of US President Donald Trump's moves against Iran are made under the pressure of the Zionist lobby, and said that the Zionists are even worried that the current escalation may lead to normalization of Iran-US relations.

"Of course, that’s not possible because Iran will not interact with them for the US violation of the international law," Boroujerdi said.

"China, Russia, and India kept their ties with Iran despite US pressures and the Zionist regime is worried that Japan will join the team," he said.

Netanyahu spoke Friday with Abe ahead of the latter’s upcoming visit to Iran later this week.

Netanyahu said he told Abe that it was necessary to maintain pressure on Tehran to counter what he called as Iranian expansion in the Middle East.

Abe will pay an official visit to Iran in mid-June to discuss bilateral relations, regional and international developments with senior Iranian officials, media sources announced.

Japanese government officially announced that Abe would arrive in Tehran on June 12 and his official visit would last three days.

The Japanese premier's visit to Tehran will be the first of its kind by a Japanese prime minister over past forty years.

Iran: Tehran-Tokyo Ties to Boost with Japanese PM Abe’s Visit
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi said on Tuesday that the upcoming visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Tehran will mark a turning point in bilateral relations between the two countries, adding that the date for the visit has not been set yet.

Mousavi said today that the visit of Shinzo Abe to Tehran has not been confirmed yet and stressed that it would be a turning point in bilateral relations between the two countries.

The date of Abe’s Tehran visit is still under discussion, Mousavi told reporters today during his first weekly press briefing after being appointed as Foreign Ministry's spokesman.

On Friday, Mousavi had dismissed the news relayed by some media on upcoming visit of Abe to Tehran in June, adding that the time for the visit of the Japanese premier to Tehran has not been set yet.

Earlier on Friday, Kyodo news agency had reported that Prime Minister Abe is mulling over a visit to Iran in June.

“Iran and Japan enjoy historic and friendly relations, there has always been dialogues between officials of the two countries, as the meetings between heads of the two states at international events or recent visit of Iran foreign minister to Japan,” said Mousavi.

“(Iranian) President (Hassan) Rouhani has already invited Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for an official visit to Tehran, and he has responded that the visit will be made at the appropriate time,” noted the diplomat, adding, “So some media reports and speculations are not true and valid.”

Back in April, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono stated that Tokyo will not follow Washington in designating the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization, stressing that his country maintains its relationship with Tehran.

Japan does not intend to toe the United States line on its decision to designate the IRGC as a terrorist group, Kono told reporters on April 09, adding that Tokyo has preserved its close ties with Tehran.

Tokyo will just mention the major points and will continue solving problem through negotiations, he noted.

Trump Claims US Not Seeking 'Regime Change' in Iran
Donald Trump is currently visiting Japan, whose prime minister is said to be considering serving as a mediator in possible peace talks between Iran and the United States.

The United States is not looking to overthrow Iran's government, President Donald Trump said on Monday, as tensions between the two countries flared with Washington deploying troops to the region.

"I know so many people from Iran, these are great people. It [Iran] has a chance to be a great country, with the same leadership. We are not looking for regime change, I just wanna make that clear," Trump said at a press conference in Tokyo, adding that he thinks "we'll make a deal" with Tehran.

The POTUS is in Japan on a four-day visit; the country's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, who is seen as Trump's closest ally in Asia, was reported by local media to be considering a visit to Iran in June in a bid to repair the damages relations between Washington and Tehran.

Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper reported on Monday, citing government sources, that Abe made Trump aware of his intention in a private conversation, and that the US president backed the idea.

Meanwhile, a top Iranian diplomat said on Sunday that Tehran was ready to hold talks with all Persian Gulf states but ruled out any direct and indirect talks with the US.

After a period of rapprochement under Barack Obama, US-Iran relations have been progressively worsening since Donald Trump took office. Tensions began to escalate last year after he withdrew the US from the 2015 nuclear deal, citing its inability to prevent Iran from pursuing nuclear weapons.

Washington went on to re-instate crippling economic sanctions against the oil-rich country, targeting its crucial oil exports as well as banking and shipping sectors.

Iran and the remaining signatories − Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany − have repeatedly scolded the sanctions and their reasoning. On 15 May, Tehran quit parts of the nuclear deal and gave the EU a 60-day ultimatum to provide effective means to help it circumvent US sanctions, threatining to step up uranium enrichment.

Recently, the Pentagon began building up its military presence in the vicinity of Iran under the pretext of countering an unspecified military threat from Iran. Apart from deploying an air carrier and a fleet of bombers to the Middle East, the US has reportedly sent a convoy of military vehicles and troops from Jordan to Iraq and is about to dispatch an additional 1,500 more troops.

Bolton & Pompeo ‘looking for fight’ with Iran, Trump trapped in the middle – Ron Paul
“Warmongering” hawks on President Donald Trump’s team are pushing him towards conflict with Iran as the situation in the region becomes more dangerous by the day, former congressman Ron Paul told RT.

The US is embroiled in “red-flag warmongering” as Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are “looking for a fight” with Iran, Paul told Jesse Ventura on his show, The World According to Jesse.

And our president is sort of in the middle. He’s [going] back and forth. One day he says we got to deal with this military-industrial complex. At the same time … he’s hiring these neocons. It’s a real mess.

The Pentagon recently deployed an aircraft carrier strike group near Iranian waters, then unveiled plans to send an additional 1,500 troops to neighboring Iraq. This posture is “very dangerous,” considering the already heightened tensions in the region, the former congressman stressed.

On the show, the politician, who leads the Libertarian Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, also discussed Washington’s ongoing trade war with China. By printing unlimited amounts of dollars, the US pulled off giving Beijing “pieces of paper” in exchange for goods and services throughout the years, he said.
