Leader’s aide stresses full support for Iranian N. negotiators

TEHRAN (FNA)- Supreme Leader’s Top Advisor for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati appreciated the Iranian negotiating team in the nuclear talks with the world powers, and called on Iranian officials and nation to continue backing the negotiators in their mission.

“The Iranian nuclear negotiating team has very complicated and sensitive negotiations ahead and they need public support,” Velayati told reporters in Tehran on Sunday after his meeting with sixty Yemeni religious scholars and cultural figures.

Velayati underlined that Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei backed the team and it is our duty to support them as well.

In November, Ayatollah Khamenei appreciated the Iranian team of negotiators for their successful diplomacy in their talks with the world powers in Geneva, and called for the country’s officials to continue resistance against the greediness of the western states.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the statements in response to President Hassan Rouhani, who had in an earlier letter felicitated the Leader on the successful performance of the Iranian team of negotiators in the recent talks with the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, France and Britain plus Germany) in Geneva.

“Achieving what you have written is worth appreciation and praise to the nuclear negotiating team and other relevant officials and can be the basis for future smart moves,” the Leader wrote in his response letter to President Rouhani.

He said that the victory was achieved by God’s assistance and the Iranian people’s support, expressing the hope that the same trend would continue in future.

“God willing, resistance against greediness (of the other sides) should always remain as an indicator showing that the officials in this sector are moving on a correct path, and (I believe) it will be so,” he stressed.
