  • [01] U.S. envoy welcomes Athens statement on Iran

  • [01] U.S. envoy welcomes Athens statement on Iran

    "The end of diplomacy has not yet been reached," U.S. Ambassador in Athens Charles Ries said on Friday during a press conference concerning the emerging crisis linked to Iran's nuclear programme.

    The U.S. envoy expressed satisfaction with statements on Thursday by the three biggest powers in the EU - France, Germany and Britain - and by EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who said that talks with Iran had reached an impasse and that it should be brought before the UN Security. He also welcomed an announcement on the issue issued by the Greek foreign ministry.

    "The United States wishes to approach this issue with a spirit of cooperation," Ries said.

    Taking Iran to the U.N. Security Council was also part of diplomatic efforts, he added.

    Concerning Greece's stance as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, the ambassador said that Athens had to make its own decision about its position but noted that Iran's policies are not compatible with efforts for peace and stability in the wider region of the EU and southeast Europe.

    Ries said that the people of Iran "are absolutely respected by the international community" while he dwelt at length on a statements by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad against Israel and the support given to Islamic militant organisations like Hamas in Palestine and Hezbollah in Lebanon.
