Heshmatullah Falahatpisheh, in an interview with Al- Arabiya network, said, 'Americans in the Security Council and the International Atomic Energy Agency also tried to raise the issue of Iran, but they did not come up with a result and it was a sort of frustration for them”.

He described Instrument for Supporting Trade Exchanges (INSTEX) between Europe and Iran as a good start, but said that this mechanism did not meet Iranian expectations, and pointed to the necessity of its development to return Iran's money and guarantee its sale.

The MP said that in the 1990s, a conspiracy was raised under the name of a critical dialogue between Iran and Europe, and they were constantly criticizing and Iran should respond; now we do not allow to do so.

The head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission announced Tehran's readiness to negotiate with Europeans in all areas and in the form of 'public diplomacy,' [JB emphasis] ' not 'formal diplomacy' to prove Iran's legitimacy.
