220 Iranian MPs urge negotiators not to violate red lines in nuclear talks
Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr.22
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Some 220 members of the Iranian parliament urged the negotiators not to violate red lines in the Iran-P5+1 nuclear talks.
A statement issued by the MPs notes the appreciation for the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei for his support and urging negotiators to observe red lines in nuclear talks, Iran's Fars news agency reported on April 22.
""In the final agreement, no supervision beyond the NPT should be accepted by the country. Research and development in technology, enrichment, and nuclear sciences should not be restricted," said the statement.
"Nuclear achievements are an indispensable ingredient of the country's progress. So, the negotiating team should just talk about the nuclear issue and not negotiate about military, regional, and international issues which are related to objectives of the Islamic Revolution," the statement said.
Iran and the P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) reached a framework agreement on Tehran's nuclear program on April 2. The sides have decided to strike a comprehensive deal by June 30. The deal will provide for the removal of all international sanctions on Iran and in return for narrowing the range of the country's nuclear activities.
Iran and the P5+1 members have repeatedly announced that they are negotiating only on the nuclear issue.
