IRGC advisor blames US, allies for possible failure in talks with powers

TEHRAN (FNA)- An Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) adviser said the US and its allies will be held accountable if the nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers fail.

“The representatives of Islamic Iran have made their utmost efforts in the negotiations with the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) in order to have the talks yield results,” Adviser to the IRGC’s Deputy Commander for Human Resources Brigadier General Davoud Roshani said, addressing people in Sarab city, Northwestern Iran, on Saturday.

If the negotiations fail to end in a final deal, “the US and its allies will be responsible”, he underlined.

He further complained that the US seeks to attain its desired results through deception and lies, and stressed that Washington cannot win any concession from Iran through such means.

In relevant remarks earlier this month, Iranian Supreme Leader’s senior adviser Ali Akbar Velayati took the US responsible for the prolonged nuclear talks between Tehran and the world powers, and said Washington’s unreasonable claims might lead to discord among the G5+1 member states.

Speaking after a meeting with German lawmaker and foreign policy spokesman of Germany’s Social-Democrat Party (SPD) Niles Annen in Tehran, Velayati cautioned that the United States’ unreasonable claims had prolonged the nuclear negotiations, and blamed the Americans for failure in the attainment of a nuclear deal between Iran and the Sextet before the July deadline.

“If Americans continue their present method, they will win no advantage, and rather differences will arise among the current allies (of Washington in the G5+1),” Velayati said.

“If the US embarks on making decisions for the other five countries (of the G5+1), disagreements will start among its allies, including France,” he added.

The 10th and last round of negotiations between Iran and the six world powers was held in Vienna from November 18 to 24.

Tehran and the six countries agreed to extend negotiations until July 1 after they failed to reach an agreement on a number of key issues.
