Iran’s top official: Country ready to continue talks with G5+1 based on common logic

Iran's Supreme National Security Council Secretary Saeed Jalili said Iran is ready to continue talks with G5+1 based on common logic as well as respect for legitimate rights of world nations, IRNA reported.

Jalili made the remarks at the end of his meeting with G5+1 in Istanbul on Saturday.

Talks should be based on common logic otherwise it will be turned into a dictation which could not be regarded as negotiations, he said.

The two-day talks of representatives of the "Six" international mediators (Russia, China, USA, France, Britain and Germany) with Iran to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue has today ended in Istanbul. EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Security Policy, Catherine Ashton and Saeed Jalili also attended the talks.

The previous round of talks on Iran's nuclear program between the "Six" (the permanent members of UN Security Council - the United States, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany) and Iran after a 14-month break was conducted in December 2010 in Geneva. An agreement was reached to hold the next round of talks on Jan. 21, 2011.

The United States and other Western countries accuse Iran of developing nuclear weapons for military purposes under the guise of a peaceful nuclear energy program. Tehran denies the charges, saying that its nuclear program is aimed solely at meeting the country's
electricity needs. The U.N. Security Council adopted six resolutions in connection with the suspension of Iran's nuclear program. Four involve the use of economic sanctions on Iran.
