Vienna technical nuclear talks to make a distinction

Vienna, Oct 30, IRNA – Teams of technicians of Iran and six world powers, inclusive of economists familiar with sanctions, will meet in Vienna today and tomorrow, determined to make a distinction.

Iran’s technical talks with Group of 5+1, comprised of representatives of US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany on Wednesday and Thursday, will be held right after two days of Iran-IAEA talks on Sunday and Monday in the Austrian capital city on how to implement Iran’s new proposed plan.



In this round of talks the Iranian technicians from three ministries of petroleum, industries mines and trade, and roads and rural development, as well as Central Bank of Iran and Atomic Energy Organization will talks with G5+1 technicians.



Managing Director of the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s Office for Political and International Affairs Hamid Ba’idinezhad is the head of the Iranian technicians’ team in this round of talks.



Iran and the six world powers agreed in their third session of talks on October 15 to follow up on the nuclear negotiations on November 7 and 8.



At the end of the negotiations, EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton hailed the nuclear negotiations as the “most detailed” and most “substantive” ones ever held between the two sides.



Washington and its western allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while they have never presented any corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations. Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.



Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.



Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions and the western embargos for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.



Tehran has dismissed West's demands as politically tainted and illogical, stressing that sanctions and pressures merely consolidate Iranians' national resolve to continue the path.



Tehran has repeatedly said that it considers its nuclear case closed as it has come clean of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)'s questions and suspicions about its past nuclear activities.
