Iran Demands West Clear Response on Nuclear Negotiations
Tehran, Aug 3.- Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, urged the six world powers of the so-called G5+1 to give a clear response to the proposals presented during the recent negotiations, an official source reported today.
A spokesman from the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) of Iran, an entity also led by Jalili, stated the official talked yesterday night over the phone with the head of the European Union (EU) Foreign Policy, Catherine Ashton, representing the G5+1.
That group of countries is comprised of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany. Its objective is to solve the nuclear dispute with the Arab nation, which rejects West accusations that seeks to produce the atomic weapon.
According to the source, Jalili said Ashton that 'a clear and specific response (of the G5+10 to sensible ideas from the Islamic Republic is a logic request,' alluding what was stated by Tehran during the recent round of talks held in Istanbul.
Jalili and Ashton's immediate subordinates, Ali Baqeri and Helga Schmid, respectively, met on July 24 in the Turkish city, three weeks after Iran and the referred group held a top-level meeting there.
The United States, France, Great Britain, Russia and China, plus Germany applauded Iran-proposed ideas in Istanbul, and will hold consultations among them to announce Jalili a conclusion within two weeks, the EU diplomatic head said. (Prensa Latina)
