Iranian parliamentarian: Upcoming talks should focus on Iran's package of proposals

The upcoming talks between Iran and the five Permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany should be based on Iran's package of proposals, an Iranian top parliamentarian Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Wednesday, ISNA reported.

The Head of Iranian Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said, "the Islamic Republic of Iran has never taken a pessimist position on dialogue with the P5+1."

Boroujerdi then expressed hope the upcoming negotiations would bear fruitful results.

"The dialogue should be based on Iran's package of proposals," he told ISNA.

The Iranian Parliamentarian said energy, security and fight against terrorism are issues which can be discussed in the fresh round of talks.

The EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton, in a letter sent in early February following the January talks in Istanbul, reiterated the group's position on Iran's nuclear issue.

She also affirmed that the world powers were keen to continue talks with Iran without any preconditions.

In Brussels, the EU said Ashton had written to Iran's chief nuclear talks negotiator, Saeed Jalili, offering a resumption of talks following talks in Istanbul.

Iran and representatives of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany as well as Ashton met in Istanbul on 21-22 January.

The EU's foreign policy chief said the six world powers are 'disappointed' as the two-day nuclear talks with Iran have ended with no breakthrough.

Iranian Supreme National Security Council Secretary Saeed Jalili in a letter to Ashton welcomed P5+1 return to the table of negotiations.
