Iran’s Strong Diplomacy in Nuclear Talks Due to Country’s Defense Power: IRGC Commander
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said Iran’s defense power and the Islamic Revolution’s inspiring role are the reasons for the country’s robust diplomacy in nuclear talks.
Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari on Wednesday said Iranian negotiators’ self-confidence and their firm stance in the nuclear talks are indebted to the revolution’s inspiration and the defense and security power of the country’s popular Establishment.
The senior commander underlined that the Iranian diplomatic apparatus has managed to stand against the excessive demands of the hegemonic powers thanks to the Islamic Republic’s defense and security might, which originates from the revolutionary Iranians’ faith in true Islam.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) have held talks at different levels over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.
In the negotiations, the Iranian negotiating team has refused to give in to the other side’s excessive demands and remained steadfast in defending the Iranian nation’s rights.
In their last round of talks in Vienna, Iran and the world powers wrapped up a week of closed-door intense nuclear negotiations on November 24.
They aimed to tackle the remaining obstacles that exist in the way of reaching a final agreement.
At the end of the talks, the two sides decided to extend their discussions for seven more months.
They also agreed that the interim deal they signed in the Swiss city of Geneva last November remain in place during the course of the negotiations until July 1, 2015.
