Geneva deal implementation to go on with good will of both, Velayati

Tehran, Feb 5, IRNA – The first step of talks between Iran and the 3+3 states was positive and the Geneva deal implementation would continue based on good will of both sides, senior official at the Expediency Council said Wednesday.

Chairman of the council’s Center for Strategic Research Ali Akbar Velayati made the remarks in a meeting with the visiting Foreign Minister of Sweden Karl Bildt.

Referring to Tehran’s will to continue nuclear talks with the world Sextet (US, Britain, France, Russia and China plus Germany), the official said Iran believes that using nuclear technology for peaceful means is the right of each country.

Velayati, also top advisor to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, added Tehran has always voiced readiness for nuclear talks and inspections of its nuclear facilities by the UN nuclear watchdog.

More in the meeting, the Swedish official said a new chapter has been opened in relations between Iran and the West after Iran-5+1 nuclear deal was inked on November 24, 2013.

Bildt added the new atmosphere created in the aftermath of the Geneva deal would be followed by more new situations in the future.
