The Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Aliakbar Salehi said to Fars provided comments on the Foreign Minister’s recent statement that Almati initiatives belong to history "Certain things were mentioned in the Almati pack and the sides have said that some parts of it will be in effect in the next round of talks.”
"The post-electoral situations have also influenced the nuclear case. The Supreme Leader has also given guidelines. These have created situations which make us more optimistic than the past,” Salehi asserted.
He further said that the nuclear case is above all else and that the Supreme Leader is personally in charge of the affair.
Expressing hopes that the nuclear talks will yield a desirable result, he added "Americans have come to understand that the current conflict has no more benefit and that the Islamic Republic or Iran has not succumbed to all these troubles. Regarding regional circumstances and the global economy, this is the direction in which the US has to move.”
"Although we do not accept the West’s concerns as fair, we can obviate them through international mechanisms, treaties, and rules. We must eliminate such concerns in the right way which is to guarantee that we will not deviate. They must also recognize our rights. So I think that in the Geneva talks we will be taking the first step,” the Head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization stated.
