Zarif Describes Iranophobia as Project of Bygone Era.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the plots against Iran have proven futile and the time for introducing Iran as a threat to world security is over.
"The international developments during the past few months have provided this opportunity for Iran to defeat the Iranophobia project which had started as of a decade ago," Zarif said in a meeting with a group of Iranian expatriates in London on Thursday.
He said that unfortunately some regional countries intensified the project.
Last month, Zarif voiced pleasure that West's Iranophobia plots have proven futile and the international community is interested in widening ties with Iran.
"The constructive policies on preserving the Islamic Revolution's values made the Iranophobia project to face serious rifts and a widespread interest for cooperation with Iran by the international community to emerge," Zarif said.
In relevant statements in August, the Iranian Foreign Minister said that "A number of ill-wishers have tried to promote the Iranophobia way of thinking among the regional countries, but we showed in the political scene that this effort is futile and Iran moves in the direction of interaction with other countries."
He pointed to Iran's important status in the region, and said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran under no circumstances lets any power to threaten its territorial integrity."
