Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 21
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani believes that Iran has already won the nuclear talks with the P5+1 countries, the Iranian state IRINN TV reported Oct. 21.
"The fact that our representatives bargain the six world powers, argue with them and reject their ideas indicates the political power of Iranian people," Rouhani said.
Rouhani went on to stress that "it is a victory for Iranian people."
Rouhani previously said that Tehran and the P5+1 group of countries will reach a win-win agreement in nuclear talks.
"There is no doubt in Iran's right to enrich uranium. The whole world has accepted the fact. But we just have disagreements on details," Rouhani had said.
"There is no argument that Iran has the right to enrich uranium at the Natanz site. There is no argument in constructing a power plant in Arak, or Fordo site's activities. The only issue is in details," Iranian president said.
He said no one has any doubts that Iran has the right to obtain latest nuclear technologies, adding that the French president has declared his county's willingness to provide modern nuclear technologies to Iran after the nuclear talks.
Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) held their latest round of talks in Vienna in mid-October to work out a final agreement aimed at ending the long-standing dispute over Tehran's nuclear program.
Last November, Iran and the P5+1 clinched an interim nuclear accord, which took effect on Jan. 20 and expired six months later. However, the two sides agreed to extend their talks until Nov. 24 as they remained divided on a number of key issues.
Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi said on Oct. 20 that the Islamic Republic and the P5+1 countries have differences in all topics.
