TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The nuclear commission of Iran’s parliament plans to propose a motion to oblige the country’s negotiators engaged in nuclear talks with world powers to vigilantly observe Iran’s red lines in the course of talks for striking a final nuclear agreement, a senior lawmaker said.
Iran’s uranium enrichment program, the operation of Fordow nuclear site and the Arak heavy-water reactor and nuclear inspections within the framework of Iran’s dignity, were among the red lines that Karkhanei said must be taken into account.
“The Western communities and the Group 5+1 should know that Iran’s parliament will not remain silent and will not allow the country’s interests to be at stake,” Karkhanei stressed.
Iran and the G5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) are in talks to hammer out a final deal to end a decade of impasse over Tehran’s civilian nuclear work.
On November 24, 2013, the two sides signed an interim nuclear deal in the Swiss city of Geneva.
The Geneva deal (the Joint Plan of Action) came into effect in January and expired in July, when the parties decided to extend negotiations until November 24 in the hope of clinching a final deal that would end a decade of impasse over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear energy program.
Meanwhile, the parties are said to be preparing for a last-ditch effort to reach an agreement on November 18 in Vienna.
