Iran nuclear chief optimistic about future of nuclear talks
Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi says he is optimistic about the future of the Islamic Republic's nuclear talks, Press TV reported.
"I am optimistic about the future of nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) and the win-win outcome of these talks," the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said on Saturday.
The United States, Israel and some of their allies falsely claim that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program, with the US and the European Union using the unfounded allegation as a pretext to impose illegal sanctions on Iran.
Tehran strongly rejects the claim against its nuclear energy program, maintaining that as a committed signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
