Spokesman:Iran hopeful about nuclear talks with IAEA

  Spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry Ramin Mehmanparast on Wednesday expressed hope that Tehran's upcoming talks with the UN nuclear watchdog will yield positive results, Press TV reported.

  The last round of talks between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was good and both sides described it as positive and constructive, Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.

  Both the IAEA and Iran announced progress in their December talks toward an agreement that the IAEA believes would allow the agency to resume inquiry into the nuclear facilities in Iran.

  "We hope to reach good agreements in the next round of negotiations," the Iranian spokesman said, adding that recognizing Iran's nuclear rights is necessary for negotiations to yield positive results.

  He said if IAEA representatives ignore the Islamic republic's nuclear rights, talks will not end positively.

  Iran is ready to allay any concern the IAEA might have and clear ambiguities, Mehmanparast said.

  Commenting on the likely talks between Tehran and the P5+1 ( Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany), Mehmanparast said "We are always ready for logical, effective and constructive talks which recognize the rights of independent nations including Iran."

  He said that some members of the P5+1, however, mistakenly think that if they mount pressures on Tehran, they can force the country to forgo its rights, according to Press TV.

  Iran and the P5+1 have held several rounds of talks over its controversial nuclear program, but no agreement has been reached so far. Both sides are currently in contact to prepare the grounds for another round of meeting.
