Boroujerdi offers nuclear talks on Iran's proposed package

Tehran, Dec 14, IRNA
A parliamentarian said on Sunday that negotiations within the framework of Iran's proposed package is the best solution to Iran's nuclear dispute.

The head of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi told reporters that talks, based on the recognized principles of the UN nuclear watchdog and the Non-Proliferation Treaty as well as the framework proposed by the two sides' proposed packages are the best possible solution.

He made the remarks when a reporter said that the EU Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana has expressed hope to meet Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili soon.

Asked about reasons behind absence of Iran in the Persian Gulf Security Conference in Bahrain, Boroujerdi said the SNSC has made such a decision.

On recent remarks made by the US President-elect Barack Obama on exerting pressure on the Islamic Republic, he said Tehran did not expect to see any change in the US foreign policy through election of the new president.

He added that the American people elected Obama since he had promised the nation to make changes in the country's past policies.

The Islamic Republic of Iran will show appropriate reaction to Obama's performance as of January 20, 2009, when he takes office at the White House, the MP noted.

As to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's letter to Obama, he said, although the president has outlined Iran's stand in his letter, there is no hope for seeing a fundamental change in the US approach toward various world developments.

Due to the Zionists lobbies in the US and their influence in the US Administration, there is weak hope for any changes, he added.
