Analyst Terms Negotiations Only Way to Solve Iran's N. Issue

TEHRAN (FNA)- There is no way out to resolve Iran's nuclear issue other than diplomacy and negotiations, a former legislator said, describing Tehran's response to a recent statement by the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) as "constructive and logical".

"Europe and specially China and Russia have shown certain degrees of resistance against the US and Zionists' pressures and prioritized reinvigoration of negotiation opportunities and diplomatic solutions to Iran's nuclear issue," as members of the 5+1, except the US, believe that deterioration of the situation harms their interests, Reza Talayee Nik told FNA on Saturday.

He said that EU Foreign Policy Head Javier Solana, IAEA Chief Mohammad ElBaradei, a majority of European countries, China and Russia have all welcomed Iran's response to a recent invitation to talks extended to Tehran by the 5+1, and added, "Iran and a majority of 5+1 member states are seeking to strengthen the atmosphere of talks and make a desirable use of diplomatic opportunities."

Saying that propitious conditions are in sight for the gradual achievement of a mutual agreement over Iran's nuclear issue, the analyst mentioned that suitable and diplomatic opportunities and conditions accompanied by strong popular support for government's nuclear stances and Tehran's logical approach towards acquisition of civilian nuclear technology have increasingly paved the way for growing support for Iran's nuclear rights.

Meantime, Talayee Nik termed Europe, China and Russia responsible for harnessing the US and Zionists' unilateral approach towards Iran.
