Iran nuclear negotiating team returns home

Iranian nuclear negotiating team returned home after two-day talks with six major powers in Istanbul, ISNA reported.

The delegation led by Iranian main nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili came back to the country on Sunday evening after meetings with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.

"Talks will be fruitful, if we abide by all of commitments," Jalili told a press conference on Saturday at the end of Istanbul talks.

He had also called for dialogues be based on shared logic, international rules and respect to nations' rights.

The European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton who led the talks said at the end of two-day dialogues in Istanbul that, "no plan is made for fresh round of talks with Iran but doors are open for negotiations."

Iran and representatives of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany as well as Ashton met in Istanbul on Friday and Saturday.

Jalili also added that further talks with P5+1 should be free of any hostility.

Iranian main nuclear negotiator then expressed hope that the P5+1 group will prepare for the next round of talks through finding joint points with Iran.

The West accuses Iran of building nuclear weapons, Iran denies the allegation and says that its enrichment program only seeks peaceful purposes including power generation and medical needs.

Iran is already under 3 sets of the UN Security Council resolutions over its refusal to halt peaceful enrichment work.

Iran and the six major powers have already met in Geneva three times, the last one came on December 6-7.
