日本の海自中東派遣を理解とロウハニ師
 安倍晋三首相は日イラン首脳会談で、海上自衛隊の中東派遣方針について説明した。ロウハニ大統領は「日本の意図を理解しており、透明性をもってイランに説明していることを評価する」と述べた。

・・・引用終わり・・・

イランが日本に石油を買えと言っても、日本ができるはずもないことは百も承知のはずなのに、なぜロウハニがわざわざ訪日したのかと疑問に思っていましたが、日本に喧嘩腰で中東に来るんじゃないぞと釘を刺しに来たんですね。

イランは、対話で中東地域の安定を図ろうとしています。UAEとも協議をしています。そんな中で、米国にそそのかされて海上自衛隊の中東派遣を画策。

世界で最もダメな、バカな何がいる国。ここは、あらかじめ認識不足を指摘しておとなしくさせて火種となることがないようにしておかないといけないとの考えですね。

イランの外交は、最近、したたかさを増しています。

次の記事は、北海道大学公共政策大学院教授=鈴木一人氏の筆になるもののようですが、バランスの取れた見方で首肯できます。

自衛隊の中東派遣、いま必要な状況か
有事で高い政治的コストも

さらに言えばロウハニ大統領がわざわざくぎを刺しに来るほど、イランは有志連合の存在に神経質になっている。イランとの友好関係が日本にとっての外交上の資産と考えれば、それを傷つけることはマイナスとなるだろう。イランも自衛隊派遣には理解を示しているだけに、ここは「調査・研究」の範囲にとどまり、イランを刺激しないことが最善の策と言えるだろう。

Jpanese Forces Not to Enter Persian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Japan is not going to join a US-led naval mission purportedly aimed at protecting shipping lanes in the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf, adding that Tokyo will send a surveillance vessel to the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Sea of Oman.

Speaking to reporters in Tehran on Saturday upon his arrival from a five-day trip to Malaysia and Japan, Rouhani welcomed Japan's decision not to join a US-led naval mission in the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf, and added that security of energy and shipping is an important issue for all big Asian and European countries whose energy requirements are tied to this region.

"Japan wants to bring a surveillance vessel to the region but not to the Persian Gulf region and the Strait of Hormuz but to the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Sea of Oman," the Iranian president added.

“Japan supports Iran’s initiative that is the HOPE peace initiative [aimed at establishing long-term peace in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz] …. Japan has also announced that it will not take part in the Americans' plan for security in the region. We welcome both issues," he said.

He noted that Iran pursues an unwavering stance on regional security and believes that “regional security should be supplied by regional countries."

Friction between Iran and the United States has increased since last year when US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from a landmark nuclear deal signed between Iran and six major powers in 2015 and unleashed the “toughest ever” sanctions against the Islamic Republic in defiance of global criticism in an attempt to strangle the Iranian oil trade.

The International Maritime Security Construct (IMSC), a US-led military coalition in the Persian Gulf, officially launched its operations early in November supposedly seeking to protect shipping lanes near Iranian territorial waters.

The US Fifth Fleet based in Bahrain announced that the IMSC, formerly known as Operational Sentinel, had opened its command center in the country.

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi slammed the US move to create a coalition in the Persian Gulf, saying it will only exacerbate insecurity and instability across the world.

"History shows that American coalitions have always been nothing but misnomers, which have not only failed to create security but also caused more insecurity and instability in different parts of the world," Mousavi added.

In an address to the 74th session of the UN General Assembly on September 25, President Rouhani invited all countries that are affected by developments in the Persian Gulf to join the country’s initiative for the security of the strategic region.

He said that the “Coalition of HOPE” aims to promote peace, stability, progress and prosperity of littoral states and help achieve mutual understanding and establish peaceful and friendly relations among them.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Rouhani further stated that he held talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about the US sanctions against Iran.

"Except for one or two countries in the world, all oppose sanctions and all also know that these [US] sanctions breach international regulations and will be of no avail," he said.

He emphasized that the sanctions harm not only Iran but all other countries, adding, "In fact, it is a lose-lose decision that the US has taken wrongly and made a miscalculation."

The Iranian chief executive also said that Japan and the Europeans are trying to break the US sanctions on Iran and have come up with proposals in this regard and noted that Tehran and Tokyo would proceed with further consultations.

On Friday, President Rouhani had a meeting with Prime Minister Abe in Tokyo where he referred to the Hormuz Peace Endeavour (HOPE) initiative, saying, "The Islamic Republic of Iran has always attempted to contribute to establishing peace in the region and the world with the help of regional countries and its neighbors.”

Rouhani, who visited Japan at the official invitation of the Japanese premier, appreciated Japan’s backing of the HOPE initiative and said, "Iran has always carried out its responsibility in ensuring security in the region and we believe that the security in the Persian Gulf has been compromised by foreign countries.”

“We need to root out unilateralism to be able to protect the security in the region and make those who follow routes other than cooperation based on international regulations understand that they must choose another path,” said Rouhani.

He referred to the good, long-standing relations between Iran and Japan, saying, "Various meetings between the two countries’ officials in the past 6 years indicate that there are very good relations between Tehran and Tokyo compared to the past decades.”

Referring to the United States’ unjust, illegal sanctions against Iran after their withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Rouhani added, “The United States’ unilateral withdrawal from international agreements like the JCPOA poses a threat to global peace and security.”

All countries have to stay committed to UNSC Resolution 2231, said Rouhani, adding, "The United States’ sanctions are considered a kind of economic terrorism and countries that are active in the field of countering terrorism must counter the US’ move.”

"Iran has exerted all its efforts to save the JCPOA within the framework of its interests, and will continue to do so, and we call on all other JCPOA signatories to live up to their commitments,” he said.

He added, "Without a doubt, this will be the key to the survival of the international agreement and countries can force the US to correct its mistakes and return to the right path.”

On cooperation between Iran and other countries, Rouhani said, "We welcome any plan that can increase economic exchanges, especially in the field of energy and increasing oil export and sale.”

Stating that Iran’s step-by-step reduction of its JCPOA commitments after the US’ withdrawal from the deal and Europe’s failure in living up to its commitments are based on the deal itself, he said, "We believe that the JCPOA is an effective model for reading peace and friendship among all countries.”

He also went on to state that the US’ withdrawal from the deal and imposition of unprecedented economic sanctions against the Iranian nation have not been to anybody’s benefit, saying, "The US’ lack of commitment damaged not only a major international agreement, but also peace and friendly political relations among countries.”

The Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes any effort by any country in saving the JCPOA and protecting peace and stability in the region and the world, said Rouhani, adding, "Naturally, we do not turn down any negotiation and agreement that serve our interests.”

“Iran has proved it in these years that it secures its interests through logic and dialogue, and has always believed that effective, sustainable agreements can be achieved through the logic of negotiation and a win-win prospect,” he added.

Rouhani also said, "The way the US illegally withdrew from the JCPOA showed that this move was a damage to an international agreement and peace and security, and it is indeed not beneficial to neither the US, nor any of the signatories to the deal, and that sanction yields only lose-lose results for everybody.”

He also expressed hope that all countries, including Japan, do their best to save the JCPOA.

At the same meeting, the Japanese prime minister said, "Iran-Japan relations have entered its 90th anniversary and the visits of the two countries’ officials have contributed to further development of these relations.”

Supporting the HOPE Initiative, Abe said, "Ensuring regional security is very important for all countries that come and go to this region and we appreciate Iran’s constructive role in securing peace and stability in this region.”

He added that Japan supports the JCPOA and will continue its efforts for saving the deal, saying that his country has begun cooperating with three European countries in this regard.

Rouhani Signs Iran-Japan Diplomatic Ties Memorial
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a ceremony signed a memorial on the 90th anniversary of Iran-Japan diplomatic relations.

The memorial sign named ‘Friendship Tree’ was the initiative of Iranian cultural attaché to Tokyo Hossein Divsalar which was done by the Iranian Painter Reza Badrossama.

Rouhani went to Tokyo after attending a Muslim world summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

In a relevant development earlier this week, Iran's Ambassador to Japan Morteza Rahmani-Movahed pointed to the broad energy cooperation between Tehran and Tokyo, and said the Japanese government was expected to provide facilities for private sectors of the two countries to be more active in the Iranian market.

Iran with its rich natural resources in West Asia and Japan with its industrial capacities in East Asia can promote cooperation to complete each other.


President Rouhani Urges Cooperation against Unilateralism
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo, hailed Tokyo’s support for Tehran’s Hormuz Peace Endeavour (HOPE) initiative, and added that unilateralism is endangering security in the Middle East.

Speaking in a meeting with Prime Minister Abe in Tokyo on Friday, Rouhani referred to the Hormuz Peace Endeavour (HOPE) initiative aimed at promoting security in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, saying, "The Islamic Republic of Iran has always attempted to contribute to establishing peace in the region and the world with the help of regional countries and its neighbors.”

He added that Japan supports the JCPOA and will continue its efforts for saving the deal, saying that his country has begun cooperating with three European countries in this regard.

Heading a high-ranking delegation, Rouhani arrived in Tokyo on Friday to exchange views with Japanese officials on topics of bilateral relations, regional and international issues.

During the meeting in the Japanese capital city of Tokyo, President Rouhani and Prime Minister Abe explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating bilateral relations, and underlined the need to enhance the level of trade exchanges between the two countries.

The two sides also discussed the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the re-imposition of the US sanctions on Iran and energy cooperation.

Earlier this year, President Rouhani and Japanese premier had met on the sidelines of the recent UN general assembly in New York.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, heading a high-ranking political delegation, visited Tehran in June 2019 and held talks with senior Iranian officials.

President Rouhani traveled to Malaysia on December 17 at the head of a high-ranking political delegation to attend a conference for leaders of the Islamic countries at the official invitation of Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. President Rouhani left Malaysia for Japan on December 20 and met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
