Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has advised the West against passing up a golden opportunity during their multifaceted talks with Tehran in Geneva. The president said during the second conference marking the National Family Day in the Iranian capital of Tehran that: Â â€œWe are ready to cooperate on a wide range of issues including economic, nuclear, international security and international political issues and the resolution of global problems.â€
According to the Shiite News he said, â€œThis is a unique opportunity â€¦ that we hope Western leaders will not waste.”
He added that if the West is sincere and wants to achieve a positive outcome from the talks, it should â€œfirst of all recognize Iran’s right to justice and respect and secondly accept the rights of the Iranian nation.â€Back to top button
After the West expressed willingness to return to negotiating table, Tehran on the last day of November agreed to Geneva being the venue of talks with the P5+1.
The country’s top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, has been named as Tehran’s representative in the talks and is scheduled to meet with EU Foreign Affairs Chief, Catherine Ashton, on December 6 and 7.
