Iran Hopes P5+1 Enter N-Talks with Positive Approach
Saturday, June 02, 2012
Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says Tehran expects the P5+1 to adopt a positive approach towards the upcoming negotiations.
“Iran entered the Istanbul and Baghdad talks with good will and with the aim of settling the Iranian nuclear issue. We hope that the other side will enter the next negotiations in Moscow with a positive approach as well,” Salehi said.
He said that Iran-P5+1 talks are on the right track although the pace of negotiations may sometimes slow down or pick up, adding that Tehran is upbeat about the upcoming talks.
The top Iranian diplomat said that the negotiations were not easy, urging both sides to contribute to the process of talks in a manner that will yield a favorable result for both sides.
Salehi said that Iran followed a policy based on the nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) and said all our efforts are aimed at helping the NPT as a non-proliferation treaty to totally prevent non-civilian nuclear activities in the world.
Such a policy is in line with the Islamic Republic’s national interests and we place emphasis on it, he added.
