Iran might revise its IAEA cooperation if West stalls for time
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 20
By Rahim Zamanov, Saeed Isayev - Trend: Iranian lawmakers issued a statement, according to which, Iran might revise its cooperation with IAEA, if the West stalls for time in nuclear talks, ISNA reported on Nov. 20.
The five-point statement also says that Iranian MPs have their full trust in country's negotiating team.
The statement also reads that Iran has always been in favor of negotiations to solve the country's nuclear dispute with the West.
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.
The lawmakers also said in the statement that Iran will not give up its nuclear rights and will pursue them in line with the NPT.
The MPs also slammed Israel and some other western powers for what they called hindering the process of reaching an agreement in the previous rounds of talks.
The new round of talks between Iran and the P5+1 countries is to be held in Geneva on Wednesday.
As the two sides prepare for the next round of nuclear talks, US President Barack Obama asked key senators Tuesday to hold back on fresh sanctions against Iran to allow talks about Tehran's nuclear program to advance.
Obama reportedly told the senators that new sanctions should not be enacted during the current negotiations.
