A senior Iranian official says in talks with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, Iran seeks its nuclear rights under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said that the P5+1 group of world powers lifted preconditions to speed up the outcome during talks held in the Turkish city of Istanbul on April 14.
He added that the NPT forms the backbone of Iran’s nuclear talks with the P5+1, which the two sides have agreed upon.
Mehmanparast further said that Western governments have failed to remain committed to the treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, and provided the Israeli regime with nuclear warheads in clear violation of the NPT.
The Iranian official highlighted that the Islamic Republic of Iran never wants to divert its nuclear program towards nuclear weapons production, and considers uranium enrichment for civilian use as its legitimate right.
