'West must stop political pretexts'

Speaking to ICANA on Saturday, the member of Iran's Majlis Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy Ali Aqazadeh reiterated that Tehran is ready to resume talks with the purpose of reaching “constructive agreements” in proportion to the West positive steps.

On September 12, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said a letter has been sent to EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton to inform her about Tehran's readiness for talks with the P5+1 -- Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States plus Germany.

In the letter, sent by Iran's Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili, Iran said that it has always been ready to hold talks on common ground in order to reach an understanding.

Ali Aqazadeh said that the letter showed that the Islamic Republic is ready to give “rational” response to questions and ambiguities of different countries on a variety of issues, including nuclear activities.

He added that Tehran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have always had regular and positive cooperation in line with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty regulations.

The IAEA cameras and inspectors are constantly monitoring Iran's nuclear facilities but the West is still making political pretexts on Tehran's confidence-building measures, the legislator stated.

He emphasized that Western powers must accept the fact that sanctions and threats cannot bar Tehran from making progress and said, “They should stop exerting pressure on Iran.”

The lawmaker urged P5+1 to recognize a nuclear Iran and refrain from making alleged claims against the Islamic Republic's nuclear program if they seriously intend to resume talks with Tehran.

Multifaceted talks between Iran and the P5+1 group were resumed in Geneva in December 2010 after a hiatus of more than a year.

The second round of negotiations was held in Istanbul, Turkey, in January 2011.

On September 5, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Fereydoun Abbasi said Iran is ready to give the IAEA full supervision over the country's nuclear activities if “sanctions [imposed on Tehran] are lifted and mutual obligations are met.”
