Iran to work with Middle East for global peace

  • Iran has declared its readiness to work with rival countries in the Middle East to endorse peace in the aftermath of the historic nuclear deal it signed with world powers last month.

    Iranian Vice President Masumeh Ebtekar said that while Tehran had the right to defend itself, it had no intention of dominating the region.

    Ebtekar hoped to regain the trust of neighbouring states and co-operate with them to counter extremist groups in the region, media reports said. (Source: IANS)
