Hardliners accuse negotiating team of giving concession

Tehran, July 7, IRNA – The Hardliners, the critics of moderate policies of President Hassan Rouhani accused the negotiating team of giving concession to G5+1, calling them as reactionary who are reviving Iran-EU Troika 2005 negotiations.

They say Iran's negotiating team led by President Rouhani in 2005 offered a proposal to the European troika including Germany, UK and France according to which Iran adopted the IAEA Additional Protocol which allows intrusive inspections to key facilities.

Iran accepted to limit the expansion of its enrichment program based on the 2005 proposal offered by Iran's top negotiator Hassan Rouhani.

The critics say that President Rouhani's approach and that of the current negotiating team is to sacrifice the national interests to achieve a bad agreement with the G5+1 (US, UK, Russia, France, China plus Germany) as like as the Geneva Interim Agreement which limited Tehran's nuclear activities in exchange for nothing.

Critics of current negotiating team believe that the negotiating team is committed to make an agreement with G5+1 without considering the costs.

They believe that the negotiating team is not honest and that's why they don't publicize the content of their talks with G5+1 member states.

Jahannews, a hardliner website close to Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel, President Rouhani's rival in 2013 presidential elections, wrote in an article published on July 6 that the Iranian negotiating team is disguising the realities behind its concessions towards world powers.

Referring to the reports released about recent Iran's package of offers to G5+1 in sixth round of talks in Vienna, Jahannews noted that the negotiating team has already passed the red lines and has proposed a package of concessions similar to the 2005.

Calling the incumbent negotiating team as reactionary, the hardliner website advised the negotiating team to take a lesson from the 2005 negotiations with the European Troika which they say led to suspension of Iran's nuclear activities and dispatch of Iran's nuclear issue to the UN Security Council.

The nation will not allow the negotiating team to compromise over its rights, Jahannews underlined.

It added that Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif's comments that Tehran will not have unreasonable demands from its partners, reveals the fact that Iran's negotiating team is preparing itslef for a big concession.

Meanwhile, Vatan Emrooz daily managed by hardliner MP Mehrdad Bazrpash wrote in an article released on July 6 that the US officials' remarks about 'limiting Iran's enrichment capabilities to a symbolic stance' is because of the fact that the Iranian negotiators do not dare to laud the nation's rights in the international scene.

The hardline newspaper advised the negotiating team to declare Iran's official stance and ensure the US and its allies that Iran will never retreat from its rights enshrined in the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Javan Emrooz Daily managed by some hardline members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps wrote in an article released on July 6 that the Iranian negotiating team has taken a 'fast of silence;' and is determined not to reveal the details of its negotiations with G5+1 members.

The article which is accompanied by a caricature of Iran's top negotiator Zarif stressed that the negotiating team should be responsible towards the Iranian nation and disclose the secrets of talks with foreign governments in Vienna.

President Rouhani on different occasions has defended his nuclear negotiating team against the so-called 'We Are Concerned' group who are critical of the government's foreign policy.

He has assured the critics that Foreign Ministry's nuclear negotiating team is enough experienced and capable of defending the nation's rights.

Critics of President Rouhani's policies particularly its foreign policy have launched a campaign known as “We Are Concerned” and have asked him on different occasions to give up his moderate policies and adopt the past policies of former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Iran's foreign policy has taken new directions since Rouhani was elected President in 2013.

Nuclear talks between Iran and the G5+1 members have gained momentum.
