Q - Meetings with Iran president and Venezuelan president
PM - . . . With the President of Iran, I said Iran is our neighbour. We have centuries old ties of civilization, culture with Iran. There has been some misunderstanding over this one particular vote. But I reiterated that that's a thing of the past. And I reiterated to the President that we recognize that Iran as a member of the NPT and must have all the rights for peaceful uses of nuclear energy and all the obligations. And if there are any doubts in the minds of the international community, those doubts should be resolved through constructive dialogue, discussion rather than through any exercise of any degree of coercion. The President agreed that our two countries must work together to strengthen our relationship in every possible way. Reference was made to the Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline. Experts are looking at the feasibility of this pipeline and once that report is ready, we will re-look at what can be done.
