Iran shows resolve ahead of resumption of nuclear talks in Baghdad
On the eve of the nuclear talks between Iran and the West, scheduled
to resume in Baghdad on May 23, top officials and media in Iran show
resolve and demand that Western countries change their hostile stance
towards the Islamic republic.
Sa’id Jalili, chairman of the Supreme National Security Council and
chief nuclear negotiator, warned Western countries this week that
making pointless statements just as the talks are about to resume in
Baghdad may jeopardize their success. At a meeting with former French
PM Michel Rocard, who visited Tehran this week, Jalili said that the
age of the anti-Iranian “pressure strategy” is over. According to
Jalili, Iran has adopted a reasonable approach towards the talks and
it now expects Western countries to take measures to gain the trust
of the Iranian people (Mehr, May 13).CLICK HERE FOR COMPLETE REPORT
