mehmanparastIran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman has urged the P5+1 group of world powers to recognize the Islamic Republic’s nuclear rights and take confidence-building measures with Tehran in order to prove their sincerity in talks with Tehran.

“The 5+1 group must recognize our country’s nuclear rights and take measures to prove they have stopped [their] enmity against our nation,” Ramin Mehmanparast said in his weekly press conference on Tuesday. He reiterated that the Islamic Republic will use its nuclear capabilities for peaceful purposes and the development of the country. Pointing to the recent round of the talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1) in Kazakhstan, the Iranian official said the outcome of the talks depends on the actions of the group. Iran and the P5+1 wrapped up their latest round of negotiations on April 6 in Almaty. Speaking at a press conference after the talks, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili said extensive and comprehensive talks were held to address an action plan proposed by Tehran based on the group’s response to proposals made in previous negotiations. Jalili said representatives from the P5+1 group sought clarification and raised many questions about the plan and received answers in full detail. EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who represents the group of six powers, said in a press conference on Saturday that the two sides “remain far apart on the substance” of the talks. However, she added, “Indeed, we have talked in much greater detail than ever before, and our efforts will continue in that direction.” Tehran and the P5+1 have held several rounds of talks mainly over Iran’s nuclear energy program. The previous round of the talks took place in Almaty on February 26-27. The US, Israel and some of their allies falsely claim that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program, with the US and the European Union using the claim as pretext to impose illegal sanctions against Iran. Tehran rejects the allegation over its nuclear energy activities, maintaining that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
