Iran says P5+1 group needs "new approach" to nuclear talks
Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 11 /Trend S.Isayev/
The P5+1 needs to have a new approach regarding the talks about nuclear program of Iran, country's Foreign Ministry's spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said at the press conference in Tehran, Press TV reported live.
"Iran has presented its clear proposals to the P5+1 group, and the group has found these proposals to be constructive and comprehensive," Mehmanparast said. "P5+1 group said they want to continue negotiations, and Iran has always supported constructive talks."
The spokesman underscored that the negotiations have to be carried out through logical approach, and the rights of Iranian people need to be recognized.
"If this happens, then the negotiations can continue. As for the exact time, it will be clarified at a later stage," Mehmanparast said.
Speaking about the talks between Iran and the IAEA, Mehmanparast said the agency is responsible for maintaining and preserving the sensitive information, that could eventually be leaked to the outside.
The IAEA and Iran have agreed to hold further talks on 13 December.
Washington and its Western allies suspect Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.
Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.
Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions and the unilateral western embargos for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.
