MPs urge release of Iranian version of Lausanne talks fact sheet

Tehran, April 8, IRNA – 212 Parliament (Majlis) lawmakers urged the Foreign Ministry to release Iranian version of Lausanne fact sheet, a senior MP reported.

A member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Javad Karimi Ghodoosi, in an interview with IRNA on Saturdy, said that the lawmakers in an open letter to the Foreign Ministry asked it to publish the Iranian version of the Lausanne negotiations’ fact sheet.

After eight days and nights of intense negotiations, on April 2, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Federica Mogherini, the European Union foreign and security policy chief, presented a joint statement on behalf of Iran and the P5+1 nations, the five members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, regarding Iran’s nuclear program.

Immediately afterward, the Iranian media published the Persian-language document “A Summary of the Solutions Reached as an Understanding for Reaching a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.” The Americans followed suit and published a similar document, “Parameters for a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action Regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Nuclear Program,” as a Media Note on the US Department of State website.

The differences between the two are far-reaching, and some could, if unresolved, seriously jeopardize the ongoing negotiations.
