Talking to IRNA Dr. Arif Alvi, member of National Assembly belonging to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf urged western states to quit the policy of double standards and respect rights of Muslims.

Experts of Iran and the 5+1 organized a mechanism or a joint plan of action for implementation of the bilateral agreement between Iran and the world Sextet (US, Britain, Russia, France and China plus Germany).

The experts have proposed January 20 for implementation of the joint plan of action.

Iran and world powers are set to resume talks Thursday on activating a landmark nuclear deal on Tehran's nuclear program. Talks are due to last for two days.

Dr Alvi said Iran has stood by its principles, adding that western states have tried to exert pressure on Iran but ultimately they had to sit with Tehran at the negotiation table.

The lawmaker added that the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has already issued a religious decree against development and use of nuclear weapons.

The legislator called on the West, particularly the US to abandon the policy of double standards regarding Iran's peaceful nuclear program.

He added that conspiracies to isolate Iran have been failed, expressing hope that the deal would bring peace and stability to the world.

The MP stressed that the dialogue between Iran and the West must continue as he viewed that talks were the only way to resolve issues.
