"I commend the efforts of group P5+1, which aims at achieving a peaceful resolution to the Iranian nuclear program ... As of this moment, we are all profoundly disappointed with Iran’s failure to respond to these efforts and its attempts to evade them. We want to emphasize the importance of making the volatile Middle East free of weapons of mass destruction."

"The meaning of negotiation is to discuss matters seriously and rationally and place clear commitments for all. Negotiation is not to bring someone who will deceive us and play with us. This is the wrong way to negotiate. These elements are missing with the Iranians. They have not proved their seriousness in negotiations to anyone, and have continued to negotiate for the sake of continuing to negotiate in the future."

"We have been receiving since 1982 all kinds of moral, political and material backing from the Islamic Republic of Iran ... We used to speak of a moral and political support while keeping silent when questioned about our military backing so as not to embarrass Iran. But today ... we have decided to speak out."

"How did this huge number of missiles reach the Palestinian resistance? Who sent it and who delivered it? Who enabled Gaza, besides the will of Allah, to fight or destroy Israeli armaments? This is what we must reconsider today, we must realize who enabled Gaza today to stand on its feet and fight and bomb Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The role of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Syria in arming the Palestinian resistance is evident."

"Pakistan recognizes Iran's right to peaceful use of nuclear technology. At the same time it wants Iran to fulfill its international obligations as member of the NPT. Pakistan wants a peaceful resolution of the issue within the framework of IAEA. As a close neighbor, Pakistan is concerned about developments that could lead to instability in Iran. Pakistan opposes any coercive measures that could further escalate tensions in the region."
