6 states in N-talks must prove political will: Iran
Press TV -(Thu Nov 7, 201) Iran’s ambassador to the UN has urged the opposite side in the nuclear negotiations with the Islamic Republic to prove that they have the political resolve to settle the dispute over Tehran’s nuclear energy program.
“Iran has participated in the negotiations with a constructive approach, and has shown its seriousness to resolve any outstanding issues over its nuclear program by putting forward concrete proposals,” said Mohammad Khazaei, adding, “It is now the other side’s turn to prove they have the necessary political will to solve the issue by seizing the opportunity provided.”
The Iranian envoy, who was speaking at the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, said that a “win-win approach” was the key to success in the negotiations between Iran and six world powers.
He said that the negotiations should, on the one hand, allay the legitimate concerns over Iran’s nuclear energy program, and, on the other, lead to the recognition of Iran’s inalienable right to peaceful nuclear technology and the lifting of unilateral and multilateral sanctions against the country.
Khazaei also said that Iran will remain committed to its nuclear obligations, adding that the Islamic Republic will continue its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Iran and the six major world powers are set to start shortly a new round of talks on the country’s nuclear energy program.
The two sides will sit at the negotiating table on November 7 and 8 in Geneva to discuss Tehran’s civilian nuclear activities
