Speaker urges P5+1 to comit to primary nuclear agreements

Sari, Mazandaran province, June 11, IRNA – Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Thursday urged P5+1 to be bound to the primary agreements reached in nuclear talks, warning that excessive demands can sabotage the process of talks.

If west does is not bound to the primary agreement, P5+1 will lose the opportunity to continue the negotiations, he added speaking in a local ceremony.

Larijani referred to Iran’s nuclear achievements, saying that Iran will not give up its right for peaceful use of nuclear energy.

He also pointed to the Supreme Leader’s religious decree (fatwar) about prohibition of production and use of nuclear weapons, adding that world powers are afraid of Iran’s capabilities.

Larijani urged Muslim countries to be united against provocative actions, noting that relying on foreign powers is the reason behind most of problems in the Muslim world.

The speaker said that sanctions only can impact 30 percent of Iran’s economy and 70 percent of economic problems could be resolved by proper management.

His comments were made on the second day of a new round of nuclear talks between Tehran and world powers to finalize the text of a long-awaited deal on Iran’s nuclear energy program, as a meeting was held between Iranian negotiators and those of the EU and the US in Austria’s capital of Vienna on Thursday.

Iranian negotiating team and P5+1 negotiators held two rounds of talks in Vienna on Wednesday. Deputy foreign ministers of Iran and the six world powers are also to hold talks on Friday.

On the first day of this round, expected to run until Friday, the Iranian deputy foreign ministers held a meeting with the Schmid in a bid to resume drafting the text of a final deal on Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program ahead of a self-imposed deadline of June 30.

Iran and the G5+1 (also known as the P5+1 or E3+3) are in talks to hammer out a lasting accord that would end more than a decade of impasse over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.

On April 2, the two sides reached a framework nuclear agreement in Lausanne, Switzerland, with both sides committed to push for a final deal until the end of June.
