Iran to make new decisions if nuclear talks move against its will

Tehran, Jan 14, IRNA – Foreign Ministry is closely watching the nuclear talks trend and will make “new decisions” if it reachs the conclusion that the talks are not moving in a track leading to a comprehensive, fair and reasonable agreement which will include Iran’s demands.
The Foreign Ministry’s position was announced on Wednesday by its Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham while she was speaking to reporters at a weekly press conference.

Referring to the resumption of nuclear talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 in 2015 which began with a bilateral meeting by Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry in Geneva today, Afkham said using the “ineffective instrument of sanctions by the US Congress would be a mistake’.

“The inefficiency of those measures has been proven to the international community. The Iranian nation can draw its prospects based on its own plans,” said the spokeswoman.

Referring to the itinerary of foreign miniter’s visit to Europe, Afkham said as long as Zarif is in Geneva, he would talk to members of the Group 5+1. More information would follow at the end of his meetings.

Commenting on recent talks held by Iranian and Russian officials, Afkham said the two sides discussed a variety of topics including Iran’s nuclear talks.

Iran believes Russia has the “effective weight” to play a more active role in the nuclear talks in a way that would lead to a fair and reasonable deal, Afkham stressed.
