TEHRAN, Jan. 2, 2014, (Press TV) Irans Parliament has proposed to have a "representative" in future nuclear talks between Tehran and the Sextet of world powers, an Iranian lawmaker says.
"Due to the sensitivity of the Parliament to the content of these talks, [the legislative branch] has requested in a letter to [President Hassan Rouhanis] administration to be represented in the nuclear negotiating team," Spokesman for the Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Seyyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini said on Wednesday.
He added that a member of the Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Committee or the Presiding Board has been suggested to accompany the Iranian delegation in Tehrans future nuclear discussions with the six major world powers - the US, Britain, Russia, China, France and Germany.
"Of course this issue should be endorsed by the administration, the president or the head of the nuclear negotiating team," said Naqavi Hosseini.
Earlier in the day, senior Iranian legislator, Esmail Kowsari, said the country has formed a team comprising senior officials to monitor nuclear negotiations with six world powers.
According to Kowsari, "it was decided that two more individuals join the team of officials (who supervise the nuclear negotiators)" to specify and clarify details for the negotiating team.
On November 27, 2013, Iran and the six countries sealed an interim agreement in the Swiss city of Geneva in an effort to pave the way for the full resolution of the Wests decade-old dispute with Tehran over its nuclear energy program.
Under the landmark accord, the six world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against the Islamic Republic in exchange for Tehrans confidence-building measure to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities for a six-month period.
On Monday, experts from Iran and the Sextet launched a new round of talks meant to devise a mechanism to put into force the Geneva deal.
