Iran has firm stance in Moscow talks: Informed source

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Moscow, June 17, IRNA -- An informed source in team of Iranian nuclear negotiators said here on Sunday that the Islamic Republic of Iran has adopted a firm stance in the upcoming talks slated for June 18-19 in Moscow.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source said that Iran in its talks with Group 5+1 abides by certain principles and it will not withdraw an iota from that.

“The least expected by Iranian negotiators from Group 5+1 is acknowledging Iran’s right to uranium enrichment. If they do not admit Iran’s right to nuclear enrichment in Moscow, therefore the talks will surely fail,” he added.

The source went on to say that the Western media from now and prior to Moscow talks are creating the atmosphere in such a manner as if Moscow talks are doomed.

“If our right to uranium enrichment is not officially recognized, Iran does not fear the failure of negotiations anyhow,” he added.

Such tactics as to delay the nuclear talks and postponing them to next rounds will not work in the future.

“Iran wants G5+1’s abiding by the agreements reached in Baghdad regarding holding talks on five topics as proposed by Tehran. As long as we do not reach on the five issues, we do not have anything to do with next rounds o negotiations,” he added.
