Iran Courts Mexico As Energy Partner And Talks Better Relations With US At Davos
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has made a concerted effort to reach out to Western powers during his trip the World Economic Forum this week, highlighting the Islamic Republic’s need for greater energy ties with Latin America – even broaching the topic of alleviating the country’s tense relations with the United States.
Speaking to a Swiss television outlet while in Davos, Rouhani said that said that it would be possible to turn around three decades of hostility between the U.S. and Iran if both sides were willing to make the effort. He added that Iran would even be willing to consider the idea of the U.S. reopening an embassy in the capital of Tehran.
“No animosity lasts eternally, no friendship either lasts eternally. So we have to transform animosities into friendship,” he said, according to Reuters.
