US fact sheet not expressive of context of framework agreement

Tehran, April 13, IRNA – A senior member of the Iranian nuclear negotiating team Hamid Baeedinejad said Monday that the US fact sheet is by no means expressive of the context of the framework agreement.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a conference entitled ‘From Geneva to Lausanne’ held at a university in Tehran, Baeedinejad said that it is natural that the Americans insist on their fact sheet.

He quoted head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali-Akbar Salehi as saying that Iran has prepared its own fact sheet and will publish if it deemed necessary.

Asked to comment about the time needed for implementation of an emerging comprehensive deal and that some say it will take six months, Baeedinejad said: ‘We have not discussed the details yet…thus, one cannot accurately predict the time needed. So the six-month prediction is not realistic and it will be shorter.’

On the next round of talks, he said that the next round of negotiations will be held at the level of deputy foreign ministers. However, he noted that no time and venue have yet been set for yet.
