Salehi: IR Iran, G5+1 achieve common understanding

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, April 16, IRNA -- Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said that Islamic Republic of Iran and the Group 5+1 have reached a common understanding in Istanbul.

Salehi made the remarks in an interview with the international television channel, Ja’am-e Jam on Sunday.

He noted that the West has come to realize that IR Iran will continue its activities irrespective of the extent of pressures exerted on that country.

“We are trying to wrap up this false dossier which has been plotted for the Islamic Republic of Iran. This would benefit both Iran and the West,” the minister added.

He pointed out that Iran is seriously against the proliferation of nuclear weapons throughout the world.

Referring to the fact that Iran will not engage in diplomatic dialogue with the US, Salehi noted that any decision concerning holding talks with the US lied within the authorities of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

“It is the leader who determines what Iran should do,” he added.
