IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Isfahan, Dec 5, IRNA -- Member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy said that the Geneva talks will focus on Tehran Declaration signed by Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Brazil President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Avaz Heidarpour told IRNA that in addition to Tehran Declaration, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's remarks in the UN General Assembly advocating a nuclear-free world as well as the rights of other countries to produce nuclear energy will also be taken into account in negotiations slated for December 6-7 in Geneva.

He also noted that Group 5+1 is seeking an excuse and have adopted strict measures against Iran.

'We are not after nuclear weapons and our religious leaders regard it unlawful,' he said.

Heidarpour, MP from Shahreza, also said that there is no ambiguity in nuclear talks but they have politicized the negotiations to deny Iran of its nuclear rights.

The Tehran Declaration called for swap of low enriched uranium with 20 percent fuel for Tehran medical research reactor. The western suppliers refused to deliver fuel for Tehran medical reactor obliging Iran to produce fuel to power the reactor which operates to produce isotopes for cancer patients.
