U.S. Dept. Spokesman: Iran needs to go on, as one swallow doesn't make a summer

Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 3 / Trend, N. Umid, D. Khatinoglu

Iran needs to show it is ready to decrease international community's concerns regarding its nuclear program, as one swallow doesn't make a summer, U.S. State Department's Persian-speaking spokesman Alan Eyre told Trend.

"We are happy that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Iran's FM Mohammad Javad Zarif agreed to continue the current process of decreasing the concerns on Iran's nuclear issue," Eyre noted.

On Sept. 26,Iranian negotiating team led by FM Mohammad Javad Zarif met with his counterparts from the country-members of the P5+1 group on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York.

The talks were aimed at jump-starting efforts to resolve a decade-long standoff over Iran's nuclear ambitions. U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry shook hands with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on the sidelines of the United Nations in one of the foes' highest-level encounters since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. It was the first meeting between a U.S. secretary of state and an Iranian foreign minister since a brief encounter in May 2007.

"Mr. Kerry and Mr. Zarif had an opportunity to discuss the road map which president Barack Obama spoke of during his speech at the UN," Eyre said.

The U.S. and its Western allies suspect Iran of developing a nuclear weapon - something that Iran denies. The Islamic Republic has on numerous occasions stated that it does not seek to develop nuclear weapons, using nuclear energy for medical researches instead.

"As Mr. Kerry said, the change of tone from Iran's side is not enough to respond to questions about its nuclear program," Eyre said. "So we should continue the efforts for achieving a significant result on removing the international community's concerns."

The spokesman went on to say that Barack Obama commissioned John Kerry to manage the nuclear talks for the U.S., adding that Kerry works closely with the EU, Russia and China on the issue.

Eyre went on to say that U.S. president underlined both US and Iran having uncertainty, doubts and suspicions and removing mistrust will not be easy.

"The US is interested in the results of Iran and P5 +1 group meeting which will be held at Geneva on October 15-16," he added.

Last Thursday, six major powers and Iran agreed to meet in Geneva for further talks on resolving the stand-off with Tehran on its nuclear program, the European Union's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said.

The meeting took place on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York and included Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and counterparts from the United States, France, Russia, China and Germany.

At the same time, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has said that he sees the nuclear issue of Iran to be solved within 3-6 months.
