Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 15 / Trend D.Khatinoglu/
Member of Iran's nuclear negotiators delegation with P5+1, who serves as deputy of foreign minister Abbas Araghchi told Mehr News Agency that Iran's position in talks with Six Powers has been changed after the 16th summit of Non-Aligned Movement held in Tehran in late August.
Abbas Araghchi said that Iran's position after NAM summit is stronger than before and the more time passes, the more we become stronger.
Iran has served as a periodic head of NAM since August 31. NAM, an international organization with 120 member-states and considered as not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc.
Iran charged by International Atomic Energy Agency and some western countries on hiding its probable military-related nuclear activities, has restart the negotiations with five permanent members of UN Security Council plus Germany since last February.
Six world powers - the US, UK, France, China, Russia and Germany have held several rounds of nuclear talks with Iran in Turkey, Iraq and finally in June in Russia without reaching any result.
Araghchi said that the West should respect Iran's "red lines" when Iran says it's nuclear rights should be recognized within Non-Proliferation Treaty and international laws.
"Six Powers says Iran should cooperate with IAEA over its commitment, Tehran says what they would compromise against Iran versus more cooperation? Of course, they should halt sanctions in case Iran cooperates over its obligation," he added.
IAEA Governors Board imposed the 12th resolution against Iran, demanding it to allow the agency inspectors to visit Parchin military base, which is suspected to conduct nuclear-related tests.
IAEA chief Yukia Amano has asked Iranian government's allowance for inspection of Parchin since last October. Iran says Parchin is a military base, not nuclear facility and it does not have any commitment to show to the agency inspectors.
Araghchi said that the West thinks that economic restrictions and sanctions would force Iran to suspend its nuclear activities.
So far, UN Security Council has adopted four rounds of sanctions over Iran. The U.S. and EU slapped a tighter restrictive measure on Iran.
