Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili has reaffirmed Iran’s determination to defend the entirety of its rights to peaceful nuclear energy.
“Within the framework of the regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), we fulfill all our obligations under the Safeguard Agreement,” Jalili said.
“We should enjoy all our rights and we do not accept more obligations and less rights,” Iran’s top nuclear negotiator pointed out.
The SNSC chief pointed to the next round of comprehensive talks between Iran and the P5+1 (permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) which is scheduled to be held in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on February 26 and noted, “If the group has returned to the talks, they should enter this round of negotiations with a new strategy free from previous mistakes.”
“If the P5+1 group seeks to enter constructive talks with Tehran, it should offer credible proposals,” Jalili added.
