UNITED NATIONS, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - Iran is ready to immediately engage in the negotiations on its nuclear program the country’s new President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday, addressing the UN General Assembly in New York.
According to Rouhani, these negotiations should have a clear-cut timeframe and be result-oriented. Rouhani reiterated Iran’s right under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to enriching uranium. On the conditions that world powers recognise that right and that all nations’ nuclear programs are for peace purposes only, he said Iran “is prepared to engage immediately in time-bound and result-oriented talks to build mutual confidence and remove mutual uncertainties with full transparency.”
Rohani also stated he listened to U.S. President Barack Obama's speech to the General Assembly earlier Tuesday and was also open to talks with the United States “to manage differences.” He expressed the hope that the administration of President Barack Obama would have enough political will not to be influenced by the “war mongering” groups.
