Double-Speak from Iran's Foreign Minister

In an op-ed in today's New York Times Iran's foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zaref stated and I quote directly:

"On a broader level, regional dialogue should be based on generally recognized principles and shared objectives, notably respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of all states; inviolability of international boundaries; noninterference in internal affairs; peaceful settlement of disputes; impermissibility of threat or use of force; and promotion of peace, stability, progress and prosperity in the region."

Would that only be true with respect to the State of Israel? I won't hold my breath waiting for President Obama, Secretary Kerry and their choir in the media to comment on this notorious example of double-speak.
