Iran has spared no efforts to prove its good intent and never sought to make excessive demands in the ongoing nuclear talks, said Kazem Jalali, Head of the Islamic Parliament Research Center (IPRC).
He made the remarks at the meeting of the visiting research delegation led by “Nguyen Xuan Thang”, the President of Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences (VASS) on Tuesday (April 14).
Referring to years of calamities suffered by the people of Vietnam under foreign invasion, Jalali said "People of Iran has a positive attitude toward Vietnam and its people for their unwavering resistance against US occupation."
"Islamic Republic of Iran has steadily tried to play a constructive role in the region without any interference in the internal affairs of other country", Jalali underlined adding that "Iran has not resort to military attacks against any country while some western countries imposed a war against us by Saddam which lasted for 8 years".
Jalali continued “Our country has paid dearly for long years of unceasing struggle against terrorist states and many of our people and officials were martyred in such terrorist acts, including our nuclear scientists in the recent years.”
“In the ongoing nuclear talks we have never made any excessive demands and tried to restore our denied rights in using nuclear energy for peaceful purposes under international laws”, Jalali stressed.
"Our nation has the potential and deserves to have access to modern technological know-how, as we have been able to gain achievements in our peaceful nuclear program despite widespread sanctions”, Head of the IPRC underlined.
Alluding to the current nuclear talks between Iran and the six major powers, Jalali said “Through the nuclear negotiations underway during the past 1.5 years, Iran could prove its good intent and powerful standing, forcing the five-veto wielding countries to sit at negotiating table with us at the highest echelon".
He added, "It is for years that our country has exposed to unjust western sanctions, but as you are witnessing our people are busy with their daily live without being distressed of the sanctions".
Referring to the current Saudi- led barbaric attacks on Yemen, killing innocent citizens, Jalali severely denounced such attacks and rejected Saudi's excuses claiming to justify their illegal invasion on a sovereign state at the request of an illegitimate president who resigned and fled the country".
President of Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences (VASS), Dr. Nguen Xuan Thang for his part, expressed pleasure for visiting Iran, adding that there exist good relations between the two countries and expressed hope for further expansion of ties between Iran and Vietnam, particularly in scientific and research fields".
He said "I had a different image before visiting Iran and now I can witness that western sanctions have not affected the Iranian nation’s will".
Dr. Thang continued "Iran has reached an acceptable level of development which is a sign of people's creativity and hard efforts in gaining scientific achievements in all fields, particularly in nuclear energy".
He also expressed hope that the current nuclear talks between Iran and P5+1 countries reach a positive result, as Iran is entitled to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and Vietnam supports this right.
Invasion of Yemen by some Arab countries is not acceptable, as this is a plot hatched by western countries to misuse some Arab states instigating them against each other".
President of the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences concluded by saying "Iran has always pursued a moderate policy, as we believe that Iran can introduce the true image of Islam and its real values to the world and rise against regional extremist groups committing crimes in the name of Islam".
