“The nuclear decisions of the Islamic Republic of Iran and its programs have already become operational and they are irreversible. Therefore, the international community should respect the nuclear cycle and the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear energy,” Ali Akbar Salehi said on Friday.

He added that the use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes is top on Iran's agenda.

As regards the recent talks between Iran and the six world powers over the country's nuclear program, Salehi expressed satisfaction with the achievements made during the process of talks.

The negotiations between experts from Iran and Group 5+1 (also known as P5+1) are making good progress, Salehi noted.

His remarks came as Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Seyed Abbas Araqchi and Deputy EU Foreign Policy Chief Helga Schmid concluded four rounds of talks in Geneva on Friday evening in order to resolve a couple of issues that had remained unresolved during earlier expert-level talks between Tehran and the Group 5+1.

Araqchi, who headed a delegation of Iranian nuclear negotiators in the two-day talks, said that both sides have reached an agreement on the remaining differences, noting that all points of disagreements between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany) have been resolved.

However, he added that a final agreement still requires final approval by all the governments.

“We had very intensified negotiations yesterday and today, but it was very good, very constructive, and we made good progress. We were able to find solutions to almost every question. There is no difference now between the two sides,” Araqchi said Friday.

“We have to take these solutions to the capitals for final confirmation,” he added.
