Tehran, Iran, July 5
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
The future of the nuclear negotiations is bright, said Ali Larijani, speaker of the Iranian parliament.
However, the negotiations are very complicated, he added during a meeting with ambassadors of Islamic countries in Tehran, Fars news agency reported July 5.
"We try to have successful talks in the end. All the country's branches and authorities are unanimous that the talks should be progressive and developing," he stated.
"The Islamic republic has always tried to gain a positive outcome from the talks. The outlook is bright and good steps have been taken to resolve differences."
He criticized the US government for saying that all options are on the table in regard to Iran.
"We do not consider such talk as constructive. The US officials have caused much damage on themselves and the region through such talks," he stressed.
Larijani hoped that if the nuclear talks succeed, the emerging situation would improve the security of the Middle East region.
Iran and the group P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) are holding negotiations to hammer out a deal on Tehran's nuclear program.
The sides have only until July 7 to reach a deal.
