Iranian nuclear negotiators continue talks within Khamenei’s red lines

Baku, Azerbaijan, June 24

By Umid Niayesh - Trend:

The Iranian nuclear negotiators observe red lines which have been outlined by the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham, the country's Fars news agency reported June 24.

Khamenei on June 23 ruled out freezing sensitive nuclear work in the country for a long time and said sanctions imposed on it should be lifted as soon it reaches a final deal with the P5+1(the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany).

He said that the period of implementation of nuclear agreement shouldn't be 10-12 years, but much shorter.

Referring to a bill that has been approved in the Iranian parliament on June 23 to oblige the government to preserve "the country's nuclear achievements and rights," Afkham said that the government doesn't regard the parliament's act as helpful.

"The viewpoints of the nuclear negotiating team on the issue were transferred to MPs earlier," the official said, adding the negotiators' concerns are not included in the bill.
Afkham underlined that the legal processor of the bill is underway, as the Guardian Council will study whether it violates the Constitution and Islamic laws.

She also said that if the bill is ratified as a law in the Guardian Council, the government would respect it.

While responding to a question about the exact time for participation of the foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif in Iran-P5+1 nuclear talks, Afkham said that it depends on the progress of the intensive negotiations which are still underway at the level of deputies foreign minister and experts.
She also stressed that the nuclear talks continue on its path forward, "but a little slow."

While commenting on possibility of extending the nuclear talks, she said it is impossible to forecast that before talks enter the ministerial level. The foreign ministers will decide on the issue, she added.

However, Iran believes that reaching a comprehensive nuclear deal by June 30 deadline is possible, Afkham said.

Afkham further said that Iran wants to achieve a good agreement and will not limit itself by time regarding this goal.
Iran and the group P5+1 are in intense talks to hammer out a comprehensive nuclear deal by the end of June. The deal is supposed to limit Iran 's nuclear activities on one hand and on the other, remove sanctions on the country's economy.
