IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Geneva, Dec 8, IRNA -- Iran negotiator with Group 5+1 and Secretary of Supreme National Security Council said here on Tuesday that the issue of upcoming talks in Istanbul late January will be common points.

Saeed Jalili said that the common points are existing concerns, adding that one of the issue is nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and cooperation for nations access to peaceful nuclear energy.

He said that Istanbul meeting can succeed if it goes upon today (Tuesday) agreement ( Geneva 3 ) about cooperation on common points.

Secretary of SNSC said that Iran expounds on its viewpoints. 'We told them that Europe is paying a high price for some of its wrong policies.' said Jalili.

Jalili underlined that G5+1 was told that Iranians' right cannot be an issue of talks and negotiation under pressure is not acceptable.

Referring to some efforts to keep pressure on Iran during period of Geneva 2 and Geneva 3 talks by certain western countries, Jalili reminded that they could not impose any pressure against Iran, since they are in economic crises themselves.
