TEHRAN, Nov. 7, 2013 (FNA)- Vice-Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Mohammad Hassan Abutorabi Fard underlined the legislatures strong support for the team of Iranian negotiators in their upcoming talks with the six world powers.
Addressing tens of thousands of the people who were taking part in a rally in the Holy city of Qom to mark the anniversary of the US embassy takeover in 1979, Abutorabi Fard said that the parliament supports the team of negotiators, adding, "The nation should also support the government in order to be able to resolve the problems with the help of each other."
The Iranian vice-speaker pointed to the Iran-West nuclear row, and said, "The US and the western world, with all their power, have tried and are trying to prevent the Islamic Republic from gaining access to the nuclear know-how, but today the young Iranian scientists have succeeded on their own in enriching uranium to the purity level of 20 percent and the West has proposed negotiations which shows their acceptance of Irans nuclear power."
The last meeting of the seven countries was in Geneva and lasted for two days on October 15 and 16. Both Tehran and the delegations of the G5+1 voiced satisfaction in the outcomes of the Geneva meeting and decided to send their experts to two days of talks in Vienna on October 30 and 31 to discuss details of Irans new proposal for soothing the crisis.
Iran and the six world powers agreed in their third session of talks on October 15 to follow up on the nuclear negotiations on November 7 and 8.
At the end of the negotiations, EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton hailed the nuclear negotiations as the "most detailed" and most "substantive" ones ever held between the two sides.
