IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, June 25, IRNA -- Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said on Wednesday that there have been no change in Irans resolve to go ahead with its nuclear program.

Speaking at her weekly press conference, she underlined that Iran and G5+1 will start new rounds of talks on July 2 and the aim of the two week negotiations is to draft the comprehensive joint plan of action.

Iran is committed to proceed with the talks and expects the other side to do the same and take a realistic approach in the upcoming negotiations, Afkham added.

Elsewhere in her remarks, she asserted that the Iraqi government is supported by the people, army and the religious leaders and the security situation in this country is improving.

Recent terrorist raids on some parts of Iraq have increased solidarity among various groups of Iraq, Afkham added.

She noted that Iran is in contact with regional countries to help restore peace to the region.

Crisis in Iraq should not affect the outcome of recent parliamentary elections in the country, Afkham underlined.

Referring to the fabricated news of transfer of some airplanes from Iran to Iraq, she noted that Iraqi officials have denied the issue and Tehran has no more comment.

Afkham added that abduction of innocent girls by Boko Harram is an act against humanity and Tehran condemns such actions and expresses sympathy with the families of victims.
