Nuclear official: Agreement possible only when Iran’s rights guaranteed

Tehran, March 5, IRNA – Spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Behrouz Kamalvandi stressed that agreement with the 5+1 will take place only when the rights of the Iranian nation are guaranteed.

Talking to IRNA on Wednesday, he said the expert-level meetings are taking place as of Wednesday in Vienna according to an agreement between the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and the European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

The meetings will focus on technical issues, he added.

He noted that a joint action plan has been devised in the way to let both sides get what they want, or in other words Iran continues with its nuclear activities and at the same time the concerns of the G5+1 member states on Iran’s possible deviations towards non-peaceful use of nuclear technology are removed.

He said the current round of talks is centered on the enrichment issue as well as international cooperation.

He further cited the harsh remarks by the Zionist officials against Iran and the fact that Americans will miss no opportunity to violate the rights of the Iranian nation as the reasons for Iran’s distrust in the results of the nuclear talks with 5+1.

Referring to the remarks of Zionist officials who are insisting on the need to confront any kind of nuclear activities by Iran, he said some might be after doing away with the whole topic but they will surely not manage to do so.

He also said that the remarks by American officials are due to the fact that part of the international community is now admitting the rights of Iran.

Iran and the Group 5+1 member states held two-day expert-level talks as of Wednesday in the Austrian capital, Vienna to discuss several issues including Arak heavy water reactor, uranium enrichment as well as peaceful nuclear cooperation with Iran.
