Iran’s foreign minister says Tehran attaches special significance to the upcoming talks with the six major world powers (P5+1) in Baghdad, urging both sides to set new frameworks for the negotiations.
“Experts of the two sides should draw a plan to determine next steps in a transparent way and prepare the grounds for building confidence,” Ali Akbar Salehi said.
Salehi once again stressed the peacefulness of Iran’s nuclear energy program and said the upcoming talks with the P5+1 in Baghdad and with the IAEA in Vienna are very important to Tehran.
The Iranian minister expressed hope that during the Baghdad meeting, the participating sides would take “practical steps” to continue talks and resolve problems.
He added the Western powers made up Iran’s nuclear issue as a means to exert pressure on Tehran, stressing that their one-sided policies against the Islamic Republic should come to an end.
He noted that both Tehran and the West should seek to settle differences over Iran’s nuclear.
Iran’s nuclear activities are carried out within the framework of the IAEA regulations, Salehi said, adding “Tehran is ready to discuss all problems in a serious way and without any preconditions.”
