Iran: 5+1 group should show willingness to resolve nuclear issue


by Joseph Earnest  April 16, 2012

Newscast Media TEHRAN The Iranian foreign minister has said that the six major powers have time until the Baghdad talks to show their determination to help resolve Iran's nuclear issue through taking confidence-building measures.  Ali Akbar Salehi made the remarks during a televised interview broadcast live on Jaam-e-Jam TV network on Sunday night.


Iran and the 5+1 group (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany) held a new round of talks in Istanbul on Saturday and agreed to meet in Baghdad on May 23.

 "If they, in the remaining time to the next round of talks, show behavior which helps build confidence, it could help reduce the time needed for settling the nuclear issue," Salehi said, adding, "They can take measures to assure us that they are determined to build confidence."

He went on to say that Iran has shown that it is keen to engage in talks and help resolve the nuclear issue, but has not retreated from its nuclear plans. 

“If the West takes steps to assure us of the settlement of the nuclear issue and the effectiveness of the talks… we will also take great steps, through employing our own mechanisms and methods, to help settle our country’s nuclear issue,” the soft-spoken minister explained. 

He also pointed to the West’s concern about Iran’s nuclear program and said that Tehran will develop a mechanism to ease their worries and protect its nuclear rights.

Commenting on the Istanbul talks, the senior diplomat said that the West has been compelled to come to terms with the might of the Islamic Republic and realized Iran’s real situation, adding that they entered the talks with this attitude, which is a positive point for the settlement of Iran’s nuclear issue.    Add Comments>>
