Baku, Azerbaijan, May 10
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has strongly opposed a bill drafted by a number of MPs, aiming to oblige the administration to stop talks with the P5+1 group if the US continues to use threatening language.
MP Baqer Hosseini said that Larijani has expressed his all-out support for the country's nuclear negotiating team and has emphasized the need for avoiding taking any hasty decision in this regard, Iran's ISNA news agency reported on May 10.
"We have no divergence with the nuclear negotiators. So, we should let them pursue objectives of the country," Hosseini quoted Larijani as saying.
"The Supreme Leader has expressed his support for the nuclear negotiators. Therefore, we should be followers of the leader," Larijani added.
Javad Karimi Ghoddousi, the member of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said on May 9 that the bill will be undersigned by the MPs and will be submitted to the parliament's presiding board on May 10.
The bill, if approved, will require the administration to stop the nuclear talks until the US ends the "language of threat".
Iran and the P5+1 group of countries - the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany - reached a framework agreement on Tehran's nuclear program on April 2 in Switzerland. The two sides are working to finalize a deal by the end of June.
