President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that foreign policy of Iran towards global affairs is highly dynamic, systematic and up-to-date. Addressing a press conference, Ahmadinejad said that Iranian international relations vis-a-vis regional and global affairs are based on a "very clear" logic, which is the logic of tranquility and peace for all and is founded on justice and spirituality. "We are for expansion of Iranian International relations (with other countries," said Ahmadinejad. He said Iranian International relations seek peace and tranquility for all nations and "By the grace of God, we have been moving in the same line until today."
The president regretted that today, human societies are ruled by certain rulers who are against spirituality and have no faith in it. "A number of arrogant individuals, who get tranquilized only by exploiting and dominating nations, are at the helm of power," said the president. He regretted that today, mankind is under control of certain governments which intend to impose "artificial peace" on the international community in defiance of justice and spirituality. "We believe that such peace and tranquility will not be established because they lack necessary foundation for peace. "Today, humanity is dominated by the rulers who want to provide security for their own people by imposing war on other nations," added the president.
Today's conditions have connected all nations together, said Ahmadinejad, adding that economy, culture and politics can not take their natural courses on islands separated from the world. Those who think they can provide tranquility by imposing war, insecurity and violence on other nations are mistaken, added the president. He said today, the inferno of tension, discrimination, and injustice is evident in every part of the world but its flames will burn those who have ignited it. "We have said that we favor for peace, calm and human dignity for all and want to live in peace with the rest of the world on equal basis," added the chief executive. Elsewhere in the press conference, Ahmadinejad expressed hope that his government during its tenure will try to materialize its election campaign promises and objectives.
