Iran insists on its nuclear rights amid rapprochement with the West, Iran's Expediency Council chairman Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said on Saturday, IRNA reported.

Ayatollah Rafsanjani made the remarks in the first session of the Expediency Council in the new Iranian year.

Referring to the last round of nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1, Rafsanjani said that the negotiations which began upon a decision by the Supreme Leader are going ahead with full supervision of the leadership to ensure that Iranian rights enshrined by Non-Proliferation Treaty be respected.

He said that the Iranian negotiating team needs support from all political parties in the country to help the nuclear negotiations yield fruits.
