TEHRAN, Jan. 2, 2014 (FNA)- An Iranian lawmaker said the one-on-one talks among Iran and the six signatories (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) to the recently sealed nuclear agreement in Geneva can ease and even accelerate the slow trend of the implementation of the deal.
The idea of holding separate talks with every single member of the group of six powers is "valuable" and regarded as "a diplomatic" move, member of the Iranian Parliaments National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Ahmad Reza Dastqeib said.
He, however, underscored that nuclear negotiations could not yield a final result unless the collective viewpoints of all members of the Sextet are taken into consideration as a whole.
In an interview with state TV on Friday, Supreme Leaders Top Advisor for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati offered a new plan of interaction to the Iranian negotiating team to be used in the talks with the six major world powers.
"If we dont have interactions with each of these six countries and dont hold one-on-one talks with them, we have not used a right method. We should negotiate with different countries separately," Velayati, who served as Irans foreign minister for a 16-year-long period, said.
He pointed to Irans previous bilateral talks with the United States on Iraq and Afghanistan and noted that Tehran and Washington can also hold direct talks about Irans nuclear energy program.
On November 24, Iran and the six major world powers sealed the six-month Joint Plan of Action to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the Wests decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program.
In exchange for Tehrans confidence-building bid to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the Sextet of world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against Tehran and continue talks with the country to settle all problems between the two sides.
