|Tehran, 5+1 should focus on cooperation: Iran nuclear chief||
TEHRAN – Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Director Fereydoun Abbasi has emphasized that the scheduled talks between Tehran and the major powers (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) should focus on “cooperation.”
The fresh round of talks between Iran and the 5+1 group will take place in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on February 26.
On negotiations in Almaty, Abbasi said, “We will talk about the future of energy in the world and about the role of each country in the welfare of human society.”
Talking to reporters after a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Abbasi also said, “I have always been optimistic about the outcome of talks.”
Abbasi added reports released by the International Atomic Energy Agency and the inspections conducted by the UN body show that Iran has not violated regulations.
If the major powers take these realities into consideration, “we will not have any problem,” he explained.
He went on to say that “we talk to the world through our knowledge and technology, and there is no need for harsh words.”
As a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Iran has right to master nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
The UN nuclear watchdog has conducted numerous inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities and it has never found any evidence showing that Iran’s civilian nuclear program has been diverted to nuclear weapons production.
