President's Chief of Staff Mohammad Nahavandian voiced optimism in the ongoing nuclear negotiations between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, China, Russia, France and Britain plus Germany).
Nahavdian made the remarks in a meeting of Iran-Italy joint chamber of commerce in Tehran on Tuesday night.
"Although the nuclear negotiations have not ended, but it is sufficient reason that we should be optimistic about the future of talks because the negotiating sides have resorted to logic and joint objectives instead of exerting their one-sided stances," Iranian president's chief of staff said.
He called on the other side of negotiations to limit its demands to the issue that Iran's nuclear program not to seek weaponary objectives instead of using the nuclear issue as pretext to confront Iran.
"In our view this isses was achieving the already available results because Iran has announced many times before that it had not sought military objectives in its nuclear program and it will not do so, but in the meantime it should follow up the right of nuclear advancement like other fields and the acknowledgement of the other side to this issue will pave the way for striking agreement in a serious manner," Nahavandian added.
