Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has reaffirmed the Islamic Republic’s commitment to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), expressing Tehran’s readiness to further alleviate international concerns.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready for further cooperation in order to allay the international community’s concerns,” Mehmanparast said on Wednesday.
Iran remains committed to its undertakings within the framework of regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the NPT, he added.
The spokesperson pointed to the recent talks between Iran and the six major world powers (P5+1) in the Turkish city of Istanbul and the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, and said the sides agreed to proceed with the negotiations based on the NPT.
The continuation of talks between Tehran and the P5+1 would lead to the recognition of Iran and other countries’ rights to use peaceful nuclear energy, he added.
Iran and the P5+1 -Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States plus Germany- wrapped up their last meeting in Baghdad on May 24 after two days of negotiations.
Both sides agreed to hold another round of talks in Moscow on June 18-19.
Tehran and the P5+1 had also held three rounds of talks, one in Geneva in December 2010, and two in Istanbul in January 2011 and in April 2012.
