IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Moscow, Jan 20, IRNA -- Deputy for the foreign policy and international affairs of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Baqeri said that it goes without saying that pursuing dialogue with the 5+1 Group will provide a win-win situation for both sides.

Baqeri made the remarks after meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on Thursday.

“Our previous experiences in the field of talks between Iran and 5+1 Group has shown that the dialogue-pressure approach as it was adopted by some western power has been in vain and inefficient,” he said.

Baqeri noted that if the parties at the next round of nuclear talks adopt a dialogue-cooperation approach, they can achieve considerable results.

Commenting on the achievements of his visit to Moscow and meeting with Russian high-ranking officials, the diplomat said that he visit Moscow upon a visit by the Russian Foreign Ministry and in view of the fact that the next round of talks between Iran and 5+1 Group is imminent.

“Parts of our talks with the Russian diplomats were about studying the latest developments pertaining to political aspects of Iran’s peaceful nuclear programs in international arena,” he added.
