Solana's Iran visit can be constructive
The EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana strives to settle Iran's nuclear case through talks and diplomacy, an Iranian MP has said, reported PressTV.
"The planned visit by Solana to Iran can be constructive because the two sides will have the opportunity to remove ambiguities about Iran's nuclear case. The other party can become aware of Iran's views on key regional and international issues," Hossein Sobhani-Nia told ISNA Monday.
In his visit to Tehran, Solana is expected to present a proposed package prepared by Group 5+1 to Iran about its nuclear program under circumstances that the Islamic Republic has earlier submitted its own proposed package, which addresses a range of topics of interest to both sides.
The common points of the two packages should be studied, Sobhani-Nia said, adding, "Iran may have a common stance on certain issues with the Group 5+1, which comprises Russia, China, France, Britain and the US plus Germany."
He stated that in the upcoming talks, Iran will stress its previous stance on access to peaceful nuclear technology, continuation of cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and return of the nuclear dossier from the Security Council to the agency.
The Tehran MP said the recent report by the IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei has confirmed that Iran's nuclear activities are peaceful and carried out in compliance with international regulations, the IAEA ones in particular.
