THE HAGUE -- Officials from Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States of America have been engaged in discussions at The Hague over issues in Afghanistan. These unprecedented talks have led the two sides to raise other matters of mutual interest, namely the difficult state of our relations. We have come to the conclusion that our two nations need to work together in order to reduce tensions in the Middle East and take steps toward peace and cooperation.
Our countries have been at odds for too long. We have important differences but we realize that the only way to address them is for our governments to be in regular contact and seek solutions to mutual and regional issues. As a first step, we have agreed to re-establish full diplomatic relations which were severed three decades ago.
Beginning today Mr. Haji Firooz will be representing the Islamic Republic of Iran as ambassador to Washington and Dr. Azar Nafisi will serve as the U.S. ambassador to Tehran. These distinguished individuals have been carefully selected for their deep understanding of political and cultural matters in our respective countries and we are confident that they will take important steps in rebuilding ties between our two great nations.
