Speaker Underlines Iran's N. Power

Speaking in an interview with the state-run TV on Tuesday night, Larijani said Tehran has succeeded in attaining its nuclear rights because it has pursued a fully reasonable strategy.

He further pointed to a letter sent to Iran by EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton on behalf of the Group 5+1 to demand resumption of talks with Iran, and mentioned that correspondence and holding negotiations were political tactics.

"Previous experiences have shown that the other side (western states) was trying to deprive Iran of its peaceful nuclear activities," said the speaker.

"Yet, Iran has turned to a nuclear country with peaceful activities," Larijani stressed.

Iran announced on Tuesday that it has sent a response to the letter it had earlier received from European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton about talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany).

The letter which has been written by Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili was submitted to Ashton on Tuesday through Tehran's Envoy to the EU Ali Asqar Khaji.

"I welcome your return to the talks for cooperation on common points," the letter said.

Jalili also stressed in his letter that certain governments useless insistence on the continuation of unequal relations in the world and confrontation against the nations' will and demands as well as support for tyrannical rulers cannot be continued.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had confirmed last night that Tehran will soon give a response to the letter of Catherine Ashton about talks between Iran and the Group 5+1.

He welcomed the G5+1's desire to continue talks with Iran, and said, "We have always been ready for negotiations but negotiations should be within the framework of justice and respect and in the direction of mutual cooperation and we hope that they have reached the conclusion that talks within the framework of law and justice and cooperation with the Iranian nation serve their interests more."

Ahmadinejad also appreciated the Turkish government for hosting the previous round of talks between Iran and the G5+1, and expressed the hope that the important issue will be settled in Istanbul talks.

Iran and G5+1 attended three rounds of talks in Istanbul, Turkey, in January.

The Iranian side was presided by Jalili, while European Union's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton headed delegations from six world powers.
