Iran's Jalili Responds to Ashton Letter

"I welcome your return to talks for cooperation on common grounds," Jalili said in response to an earlier letter by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, IRNA reported Tuesday.

Jalili described "respect for nations' rights and avoidance of pressure" as two very basic principles for cooperation, reiterating that the will of nations will finally overcome hegemonic relations in the word order.

The Iranian top nuclear negotiator said the era when powers insisted on unequal relations and disregarded the rights of nations has come over.

"Recent developments over the past few months have proved that Iran's package of proposals put forward three years ago is based on a real understanding of facts," Jalili noted.

The letter was submitted to Ashton, who represents the P5+1, by Iran's ambassador to the EU on Tuesday.

Iran and the P5+1 -- Britain , China, France, Russia, and the United States plus Germany -- held two rounds of multifaceted talks in Geneva in December 2010 and in the Turkish city of Istanbul last January.

In a letter sent to Iran in early February following the January talks in Istanbul, Ashton reiterated the group's position on Iran's nuclear program but also affirmed that the world powers were keen to continue talks with Iran without any preconditions.
