AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in a telephone conversation with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Wednesday said that the incumbent US government's adherence to the failed policies of the former US administration is the main obstacle to the acceptable progress of the negotiations.

President Raisi held a phone conversation with Fumio Kishida on Wednesday.

Referring to magnificent and peaceful civilizations of two states, President Raisi told the Japanese PM that boosting Tehran-Tokyo relations would benefit all nations.

Given the capacities of the two states, it is possible to take big steps towards strengthening Tehran-Tokyo relations, he added.

President Raisi highlighted that the incumbent US government's adherence to the failed policies of the former US administration is the main barrier to the acceptable progress of the negotiations, adding that regardless of the nuclear deal, the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to increase its level of relations and cooperation with other states, including Japan, in the interests of both nations.

Pointing to the need for lasting peace and stability in the world, he stressed that Tehran and Tokyo can play an effective role in creating and promoting peace and stability in the region and the world by strengthening bilateral cooperation.

The President considered foreign intervention as the major cause for insecurity in the region and stressed the significance of resolving the Yemeni crisis through internal Yemeni talks.

Today, it is necessary to break the oppressive siege on Yemen to prevent the heinous crime committed by the coalition forces in slaughtering and killing the defenseless people of the country, President Raisi underscored.

Fumio Kishida, for his part, offered congratulations on the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution and said that when he was the foreign minister and chairman of the Iran-Japan Friendship Group, and today, as the Prime Minister, with his knowledge of the capacities of the two states, he has always sought to develop ties and activate joint cooperation capacities.
