Source: IRNA

Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry said here Tuesday that principles of Iranˈs foreign policy are unchangeable.

Talking to reporters at his weekly news conference, Abbas Araqchi said the main criterion of Iranˈs foreign policy is to preserve the right of the Iranian nation.

Asked if some changes would appear in Iranˈs foreign policy during the new presidentˈs tenure, he said the Monday press conference held by president-elect Hassan Rohani made many issues clear.

Rohani held first news conference after his victory in the June 14 presidential election attended by foreign and domestic reporters on Monday.

The Islamic Republicˈs foreign policy is based on maintaining and serving the values of the Islamic Revolution and the countryˈs national interest within the framework of guidelines of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Araqchi.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is committed to its rules; however, each government follows its own tactics and methods which differ from one another, he noted.
