Rouhani contacts China, UK and France leaders on N-Talks

TEHRAN, Mar. 27 (MNA) – Iran’s President Rouhani has contacted his Chinese, British and French counterparts separately to discuss ongoing nuclear negotiations.

President Hassan Rouhani had separate phone conversations with his Chinese and French counterparts as well as the British prime minister on Thursday to discuss the latest developments in the nuclear talks between Tehran and the 5+1 underway in Lausanne, Switzerland.

During the phone talks, President Rouhani stressed that mutual respect should underlie the talks and any final nuclear deal between Tehran and the six world powers, and reiterating that Iran sees removal of all sanctions as an indispensable part of any agreement.

During his phone conversation with British Prime Minister David Cameron, President Rouhani cautioned the world powers not to miss the present chance for striking a deal with Iran, and described “full annulment of sanctions as the most essential component of the negotiations for moving towards a final settlement” of the differences and attainment of a final deal over Iran’s nuclear issue.

He also called for a replacement of confrontational approaches with a policy based on future cooperation through confidence-building.
