Iran Renews Readiness to Resume Talks with World Powers

"Iran is prepared to resume talks based on the Geneva package and negotiations in Istanbul whenever the Group 5+1 member states are ready," Mehman-Parast said on Thursday.

"The West should consider Iran's explicit views about all common points in negotiations among several countries," he added.

He added that the letter of EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton indicated West's disagreement with Iran's proposals during negotiations in Geneva and Istanbul.

Earlier in May, Ashton ignored Iran's readiness for further talks with the world powers on common grounds.

Ashton pointed to a recent letter by Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili and said, "On its own, Dr Jalili's letter does not contain anything new and does not seem to justify a further meeting."

In his letter, the SNSC secretary welcomed talks with the Group 5+1 based on common grounds and in a pressure-free atmosphere.

"I welcome your return to talks for cooperation on common grounds," said the top Iranian nuclear negotiator in response to an earlier letter by Ashton.

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.

Speaking to reporters in a press conference in Istanbul at the time, Jalili said, "We have always stressed that talks can be useful, successful and progressive only when they are based on a common logic."

"If you decide to use another instrument instead of common logic, this would result in dictation and not negotiation, and dictation does not deserve a kind of talks based on the nations' cultures."

"Our Geneva agreement included several key points, including talks for cooperation on common points," Jalili stressed at the time.
