Analyst Urges G5+1 to Recognize Iran's N. Rights

TEHRAN (FNA)- Political analyst Redwan Rizk called on the six world powers (the US, Britain, China, Russia, France and Germany) to show that they are honest in their talks with Iran by recognizing the latter's indispensable right to make use of the peaceful nuclear technology.

"If the west wants the talks with Iran to be fruitful, they have to recognize the rights of the Iranian people and stop "imbalanced judgments towards Iran and towards the Islamic world", Rizk said.

"Iran has proposed so many times to fulfill the questions or to answer the questions of the west and the west turned its blind eye most of the time. All they want is to get the Iranians to stop their program and to stop all nuclear reactors on the Iranian land," he added.

Last month, Iran and the six world powers wrapped up their 4th round of talks after two days of intensive negotiations in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

The Iranian team was led by Iran's top negotiator Saeed Jalili, who is also the Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), and the G5+1's representatives were presided by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

Iran had announced a day prior to the start of the talks that it would enter the negotiations with the G5+1 with clear, groundbreaking proposals.

Iran has so far ruled out halting or limiting its nuclear work in exchange for trade and other incentives, saying that renouncing its rights under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) would encourage the world powers to put further pressure on the country and would not lead to a change in the west's hardline stance on Tehran.

Iran is under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment. The United States and the European Union have ratcheted up their sanctions on Iran this year to force it to curb its nuclear program.

Iranian officials have always shrugged off the sanctions, saying that pressures make them strong and reinvigorate their resolve to further move towards self-sufficiency.
