Accordingly, a major priority for us will be our neighbours”, and Asia, which he described as “two axes in our foreign policy priorities”, adding: “our priority over neighbours and Asia does not mean ignoring the rest of the world”. Amirabdollahian further noted that “we view dialogue with regional nations as a principle and consider regional talks as a serious way out of the current situation in the region”, while arguing: “Foreign interference and efforts to resolve regional issues through military means are detrimental to the region”.
