VIENNA, September 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Iran expects the P5+1 group’s approach towards Tehran’s nuclear program to be “constructive and realistic”, spokesman to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Behrouz Kamalvandi said on Tuesday.
The P5+1 is a group of countries which in 2006 joined the diplomatic efforts with Iran in regard to its nuclear program. The term refers to the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, namely the United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, France, and Germany.
Kamalvandi is head of the Iranian delegation at the 58th IAEA General Conference currently underway in Vienna. “Today a window of possibilities has been opened to reach a comprehensive agreement. We expect our partners to choose a constructive and realistic approach at the current talks,” he said.
At the same time, Kamalvandi said, “Sanctions and double standards considerably harm the negotiations and undermine trust.”
Since President Hassan Rouhani came to power, he “shows goodwill” for clarifying certain issues regarding the peaceful nature of its nuclear program despite the fact that sometimes they are based on “fabricated accusations”, he said.
