Senior MP: Compliance with US Policies Detrimental to EU.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi in a meeting with Head of the Italian parliament's Defense Commission Luciano Rossi warned the European countries against compliance with Washington's wrong policies.

"The European countries should make their decisions based on their own national interests and following the US policies will harm on them," Boroujerdi said on Sunday, stressing that some European countries are moving on a wrong path because they are following the US policies.The US and Iran have cut their diplomatic ties after the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979 but European countries, except for a few, tried to maintain their relations and cooperation with Tehran when they saw that such an approach serves their economic and political interests.Elsewhere, Boroujerdi referred to the age-old cultural and civilization commonalities of Iran and Italy, and said Iranians think well of the Italians and Italy has a positive position among the Iranian people.He further stressed the importance of expanding and consolidating parliamentary relations between Iran and Italy, and reiterated that the Iranian parliament supports development of ties and cooperation between the two legislative bodies.During the meeting, Rossi expressed pleasure in his visit to Iran, and said boosting parliamentary relations will create a good atmosphere for more constructive talks and will remove misunderstandings between the two sides.
