The Tel Aviv regime continues its hostile policy against the Islamic Republic as Iran and the P5+1 group resume a new round of talks on Tehran’s nuclear energy program.
On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged the West not to ease sanctions imposed on Iran in a bid to win Tehran’s agreement to join a so-called international coalition against the ISIL Takfiri group.
On the same day, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry discussed the issue of Iran’s nuclear energy program and the threat imposed by the ISIL group in New York.
The latest round of talks between Iran and the six countries – Russia, China, the United States, Britain, France and Germany — started at the UN headquarters in New York on Friday morning.
The two sides signed a historic interim deal in Geneva, Switzerland, last November. The agreement came into force on January 20 and expired six months later. In July, they agreed to extend the negotiations until November 24.
Paris recently hosted a conference, dubbed the International Conference on Peace and Security in Iraq, to discuss ways of tackling the ISIL terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
In an exclusive interview with NBC News in Tehran on Wednesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the US-led coalition against the ISIL terrorists “ridiculous.”
The coalition members include those who provided the ISIL with weapons and training, Rouhani added.
