Interior Minister: Iran Nuclear Talks Progressing in Logical Path
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran's Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli praised the progress of ongoing negotiations between Iran and six world powers over the country’s peaceful nuclear program, saying that the talks are moving in “a logical path”.
“Nuclear negotiations are in a logical path”, which can lead to a comprehensive agreement in line with Iran’s interests, Rahmani Fazli told reporters on the sidelines of a national conference in Tehran on Wednesday.
“All the European and regional countries are pleased that the (nuclear) issue is being followed in a logic path except Israel, whose existance is dependent on others’ death…” the minister noted.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) are in talks to sign a long-awaited deal to end more than a decade of impasse over Tehran’s civilian nuclear energy program.
Senior diplomats from Iran and the US have started the new round of nuclear talks since Monday with the aim of narrowing down differences over a comprehensive agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program.
Iran’s top negotiator, Mohammad Javad Zarif, announced on Monday that the new round of talks in Switzerland has provided a good opportunity for him and his US counterpart to discuss ways on a speedy removal of sanctions imposed on Tehran over its peaceful nuclear program.
A plenary session involving Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) is slated for March 5.
