MP: Iran to Maintain N. Policies Even with New Negotiators
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s policy on nuclear issue complies with the country’s national interests and will remain unchanged even by a change in the country’s team of negotiators, a senior Iranian lawmaker said on Wednesday.
Speaking to Tasnim, member of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Seyed Baqer Hosseini said by new negotiators, Iran may adopt new tactics (not policy) of negotiation.
“General nuclear policies comply with the country’s interests and our general policies will witness no change in case of change in the team of negotiators,” Hosseini stated.
He added that change in the Iranian team’s tone in negotiations may result in reaction by the other negotiating parties in the interest of Iran.
The United States and the European Union have imposed illegal unilateral sanctions against Iran over the false claim that Iran's nuclear energy program includes a military component.
Iran rejects the allegation, arguing that numerous inspections of its nuclear sites by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have invariably failed to find any diversion toward military purposes.
