Islamic Republic of Iran has done its utmost to reach a final deal in the ongoing nuclear talks with P5+1 group of countries and that success of the negotiations rests on western parties to honor their commitments, said Kazem Jalali, Head of the Islamic Parliament Research Center (IPRC).
Jalali made the remarks at the meeting with Jiro Hanyu, President of Sasakawa Peace Foundation of Japan on Monday, 20 April.
He said “The world stands witness that the Islamic Republic of Iran is doing its utmost to make the ongoing negotiations with major powers bear fruits, but western negotiating parties fail to abide by their obligations”.
Jalali underlined “Hiroshima and Nagasaki unspeakable nuclear bombings will be always remembered and such a tragic experience is enough for the international community to mobilize its efforts for a nuclear-free world”, despite non-compliance of nuclear weapon states with their obligations.”
“Just distribution of science and wealth is the key element for the establishment of peace in the world and that lasting peace is geared to the dismantling of all weapons of mass destruction”, Jalali stated.
Jalali continued “Islamic Republic of Iran accepted to sit at the negotiating table because it seeks its inalienable rights to peaceful nuclear energy under international laws".
He stressed that the current negotiations would not reach any final deal unless the western negotiating parties decide to practically comply with their obligations.
On the critical situation facing the region, Jalali expressed his deep concern over the brutalities currently perpetrated under the name of Islam by Islamic extremist groups who intend to tarnish the true image of Islam.
Referring to the crimes of ISIS takfiri group in Syria and Iraq, Jalali condemned brutal beheading of the Japanese journalist by this terrorist group that are morally and financially supported by certain regional and trans-regional states.
