5+1 should prove political will to settle nuclear dispute, diplomat

New York, Nov 7, IRNA – Iran’s ambassador and permanent representative to the UN urged Wednesday the group of sextet to prove their political will to settle the existing nuclear dispute. 

Iran, following a constructive approach, attended the talks and presented practical proposals which indicated Tehran’s seriousness in resolving the issue, said Mohammad Khazaee.

Addressing the plenary session of the UN General Assembly in New York, Khazaee urged the two sides to adopt a win-win approach which would guarantee success in talks between Iran and the Group 5+1- the US, Britain, France, Russia and China plus Germany.

The talks should remove legitimate concerns regarding Iran’s nuclear program, on one hand, and fully confirm Iran’s rights to pursue peaceful nuclear energy, on the other, said the ambassador.

According to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) regulations and the charter of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), right to use peaceful nuclear energy can never be suspended or limited, stressed the Iranian envoy.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has been always fulfilling its commitments and will continue its constructive cooperation with the IAEA in future, said Khazaee.

Describing the latest talks between Iran and the IAEA as successful, he said bilateral cooperation has entered a new chapter.

During the UN meeting on Wednesday, the IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano called the agency’s recent talks with Iran as constructive.
