MUNICH, Germany - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called here on Sunday at the 53rd Munich Security Conference for the abolition of nuclear weapons worldwide.

"It is time to abolish nuclear weapons worldwide," said Zarif during his speech, adding that his country will never build a nuclear weapon.

Zarif told the audience that it is easy to make all Muslims "the culprit for our problems", but it does not help solve anything.

Instead, he suggested the problems should be redefined for a collective solution in a "neutrally acceptable way."

In addition, Zarif also proposed a new modest regional dialogue forum based on generally recognized principles which could promote understandings, encourage practical cooperation and lead to a security agreement for the region.
