(IRAN) - Iran is ready to consider international participation in enrichment plans provided that Tehran is accepted as a real partner in any plan, Deputy Foreign Minister in Legal and International Affairs Abbas Araqchi said Monday.
Araqchi was talking with head of disarmament, arms control and non proliferation sub-commission in German parliament who is in Tehran accompanied with a delegation, reports Trend.
Araqchi said trust-building was a two-way avenue in which the Iranian side took big strides while no advancement was observed from the European side, the Foreign Ministry's Media Department said on Monday.
"Various factors caused Iran's mistrust among which was the failed experience of nuclear cooperation between Iran and the United States, France, and Germany before the Islamic Revolution which resulted in great loss of Iran's resources.
Araqchi added fruitlessness of some two-and-a-half years of enrichment suspension by Iran and then facing with the European void proposed package was the other cause that made Iranians determined to get independent in all aspects of peaceful nuclear activities and enrichment.
He also emphasized that Iran is ready for unconditional talks.
Stressing that Iran's research activities were done under strict IAEA inspection, Araqchi added that with this level of transparency in our activities and sense of cooperation, the U.N. Security Council's action seems not to be justified and logical.
He further blamed the United States as responsible for not implementation of the comprehensive Non-Proliferation Treaty.
In the meeting, the two sides stressed the necessity of continuation of talks to remove the ambiguities and create mutual trust while calling for more dialogue.
