|Iran only displaying more transparency in nuclear talks: Rouhani||
TEHRAN - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said that Iran is only displaying more transparency and nothing more during the nuclear talks.
Rouhani made the remarks in a televised interview broadcast on Tuesday.
He stated that Iran’s red line is defending the people’s rights in the nuclear talks with the 5+1 group (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany), which are being held with the goal of reaching a final deal on Tehran’s nuclear program by a July 20 deadline.
Following are excerpts of the interview:
Iran is optimistic about the results of the talks and has taken great steps to reach a comprehensive deal and aims to achieve a win-win result in the talks.
Those who suppose that they can pursue the nuclear issue through the use of force do not have a good understanding of political issues.
In the negotiations, neither side will defeat the other, and officials can reach agreements through interaction.
Sanctions are a great injustice and should be lifted.
The Iranian people are happy about the [possible] lifting of the sanctions, and just a tiny minority is angry because they have come to lose… that’s where all attempts to tarnish the government originate.
Through lies and hype, some people are trying to derail the government from its path, and this is against national interests and the Leader’s order… Iran does not compromise on the people’s interests.
Iran’s nuclear activities are peaceful and under the inspection of the International Atomic Energy Agency, so the nuclear issue can be resolved within a short period of time, if the other side takes action within the framework of international law.
Today, many foreign corporations are expressing interest in cooperating with Iran in economic activities, and many Western officials pay visits to Iran, and all of this indicates that both sides are optimistic about the results of the talks.
Iran has begun to take the path of peace and reconciliation and will stay on that path and will continue to promote ties with other countries.
