The West needs to recognize Iranian people's rights, after that we can cooperate to remove the concerns they have with country's nuclear program, Iranian Foreign Ministry's Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said in Tehran at a weekly press conference, PRESS TV reported live.
Iran and 5+1 group (Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States plus Germany) held three sessions of talks in Baghdad on May 23 and 24 after an earlier round of negotiations in the Turkish city of Istanbul in mid-April.
Another round of nuclear talks was held in Moscow on June 18-19. The Iranian negotiating delegation in the Moscow talks was led by Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili, and the P5+1 group of countries was headed by Catherine Ashton.
"It is clear that the West wants to resolve this issue, however West contradicts itself by imposing sanctions pushing us to retreat from our rights," Mehmanparast said.
Mehmanparast underscored that as long as the West keeps the wrong mentality, it will have negative impact on the nuclear negotiations.
Iran's nuclear talks with the 5+1 group (the permanent members of the UN Security Council-the U.S., Britain, France, Russia and China) plus Germany finished their third round in Moscow on June 18-19, and are to continue in Istanbul today on July 3 where experts will go over technical details.
