Velayati appreciates positive measures of negotiating team

Tehran, Jan 15, IRNA – Head of the Strategic Center of the Expediency Council described Wednesday the measures taken by Iran's negotiating team as positive.

Ali Akbar Velayati said the team's prudence and wisdom will safeguard the Islamic Republic's nuclear rights.

He made the remarks in response to IRNA question about the November 24 nuclear deal reached between Iran and the group of sextet and implementation of the joint plan of action.

Velayati further hoped the efforts made by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and the negotiating team would continue seriously and constructively.

The US officials, he stressed, should know that they have to fulfill their committments towards the agreement if they want to witness successful advance in the talks.

If they act against the Geneva agreement, they will lose their friends including some of those in the Group 5+1- the US, UK, France, Russia and China plus Germany- said the official.

Earlier, Velayati met and conferred with Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies of Russia Vitaly Naumkin.
