N-talks should be finalized with lifting all sanctions against Iran - Rouhani
Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 25
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said that the talks with the P5+1 group over the country's nuclear program should lead to lifting all sanctions.
He also emphasized that Iran will not accept excessive demands in the talks.
" Iran would not accept neither humiliation, nor infliction in the negotiations," Rouhani said.
The western side should understand that Iran will never turn back from its scientific development path, Rouhani said, IRINN TV channel reported live on Feb. 25.
He further said that "the illegal" sanctions against Iran are violating human rights, arguing that today Iran is not alone in the world but its enemies are isolated.
Iran has taken important steps in its foreign policy, Rouhani underlined.
He also slammed the critics of his administration saying the Islamic Republic will continue on its path to resolve problems over its nuclear program without caring about certain people causing trouble.
A fresh round of Iran-P5+1 (the US, UK, France , Russia , China , and Germany) talks will be held in Geneva on March 2.
The latest round of talks was for the first time attended by Chairman of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi and US Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz. The two attended the talks to discuss detailed technical issues.
The talks between Iran and the P5+1 were extended until June 30, 2015 to reach a comprehensive nuclear agreement. However, the sides are attempting to reach a political accord in March.
After the parties failed to meet the November 24, 2014 deadline they also extended the Geneva nuclear deal, which was signed in November 2013 for providing Iran with some sanctions relief in exchange for Tehran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities.
