"Transparency but not limitations" Larijani told German envoy

IRAN  - In a meeting with German envoy in Iran, the chief of the Iranian Judiciary's Human Rights Council Mohammad Javad Larijani refused any limitations in peaceful nuclear activities of the country.

Stressing the mutual respect and understanding between countries, Larijani said that the world should not be seeking a show as the US presidents do.

"Europe is not the whole world and other parts of the world should be paid enough attention as well," he added.

Regarding terrorism Larijani said that there is no good or bad terrorism and Germany needs to change its stance with respect to the terrorist group MKO who has committed horrible crimes.

He also criticized western countries including Germany for having wrong policies which back up Saudi Arabia by selling arms to this country.

The HCHR secretary also expressed deep regret for the measures taken by the ISIS with respect to destroying civilizations and also for the fact that this group was unfortunately backed up by Washington.

"We are facing with racism in the western countries which is a very important topic and we would like this subject to be included in bilateral talks.'

German Ambassador to Iran Michael Klor-Berchtold, in his turn, claimed that his country has limited arms exports to Saudi Arabia and currently has "the least arms sale compared to other countries."

"Some German parties have called on a total ban on arms sale to Saudi Arabia and the Parliament is considering the issue."

Germany, one of the world's top arms exporters, has frequently faced criticism for its foreign arms sales. Merkel's government has approved billions of euros of exports, including to nations accused of human rights abuses and or engaged in violent conflict.

Majid Tafreshi, the deputy for international affairs at the High Council for Human Rights and Thomas Ditt, the First Secretary of German Embassy also attended the meeting.

Transparency; but no limitation
Recalling EU's commitment to the troubled nuclear deal, Larijani stressed that Islamic Republic does not believe in nuclear bombs based on its Islamic values but "nuclear energy is different."

He furthermore added that transparency could be acceptable but not any limitations.

Referring to the nuclear deal between Iran and P5+1, Klor-Berchtold praised Iran commitment, saying that "Iran has proved to be committed to international treaties."

Both parties exchanged views on human rights developments including the revision of anti-Narcotics Law in Iran and a remarkable reduction in the number of executions, article 91 of the Penal Code, and the necessity not to use human rights as a tool. They also expressed their interest in continuing these bilateral talks in the future.
