Dismissing what he called earlier “illegal” sanctions against Iran over its sensitive nuclear program, Jahangiri said Iran has opened a path of dialogue and exchanges to settle the nuclear dispute with the West.
The senior Iranian official also said any nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group, including the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany, must respect the countrys rights for peaceful use of nuclear powers.
“We seek an agreement that observes the rights of the Iranian nation …, and we have emphasized since the beginning (of the nuclear talks) that no deal is better than a bad one and we are not after a bad deal at all,” Jahangiri said reiterating earlier remarks of Irans Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Khamenei said Sunday that no nuclear deal is better than a bad deal, as Iran and world powers gear up for an immediate deadline by the end of March.
“I agree with an agreement (on Irans nuclear issue) …, but no agreement is better than any agreement which undermines the interests of our nation,” he said.
Iran agreed to suspend nuclear activities in return for limited ease of sanctions under an interim deal between Tehran and the P5+1 group on Nov. 24, 2013, pledging to reach a deal by July 2014.
After failing to bridge the gaps in 2014, both sides are committed to agreeing on a general framework of the potential deal by the end of March, before heading towards another self-imposed deadline for a final and comprehensive deal by July this year.
The Western powers have imposed rounds of diverse sanctions on Iran, accusing the Islamic Republic of having been developing atomic weapons under the cover of civilian nuclear plan. Iran rejected the allegations as baseless, and insisted that its nuclear program is solely peaceful.8.03KRelated StoriesIran says no nuclear deal better than bad oneIran rejects US call for anti-terror co-opUS Senate panel approves Iran sanctions billIran seeks quick nuclear agreement: spokeswomanNew round of Iran nuclear talks moves ahead: Chinese FMOpening round of Iran sanctions fight kicks off in SenatePhotoUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchEfforts needed for sustainable projects1st Panda cub born in France named Yuan MengFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauChina-JapanChina-USChina-AfricaChina-EuropeLi tells Japanese business leaders its time for bilateral cooperationChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationGroup of lawmakers visit notorious Yasukuni Shrine in JapanJapan can offer experience, expat saysChina-Japan ties seen at dialogue as benefit to regionChina, Japan officials exchange views on security issues at 15th dialogueChinese music finds new foothold in United StatesC919 flies toward air worthinessPolitical leaders: Sino-US relations to growChina vows steps after US launches probe into aluminum tradeGates is added to top-tier Chinese academyYao helps AB InBev fight alcohol abuseAction urged over pollutionUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityChina vows to deepen bilateral ties with new Zimbabwe govtChinese, African parties meet to share wisdom on modernization2nd China-Africa Investment Forum begins in MoroccoLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchPeak performance by Chinese nurse on Scotlands mountains9-month festival of Chinese art, heritage to be staged in Liverpool, UK, next yearChina eyes closer economic, trade cooperation with BelarusPremier calls to enhance trade liberalization and facilitation in SCOPremier: China to advance production capacity with UzbekistanAsia PacificUS & CanadaEuropeAfricaMiddle EastChinese tourists go to South KoreaChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingBelt and Road a great opportunity: Uzbek officialKwaussie wins Australias word of the yearJapan can offer experience, expat saysTrudeau visits Sina WeiboChina, Canada agree to issue joint statement on climate changeDemocrats stand united against GOP tax billUS quits talks on global migration pactTensions triggered over possible moveSino-Canadian bilateral trade ties to deepen furtherMay gets little gasp as EU extends deadline for sufficient progress in Brexit talksRussia banned from Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchBoth first ladies name panda cub Yuan MengLiu Yandong heralds bilateral cooperation in education and researchEthiopian FM urges strengthened Ethiopia-China tiesUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaAction urged over pollutionBelt and Road Initiative to help countries achieve UN goals: officialChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityMorocco king holds historic talks with South African president in AbidjanYemens ex-president Saleh, relatives killed by HouthisTrump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would raise regional tensionsYemen rattled by raids as clashes spreadSquash a perfect match for girl refugees in JordanSyrian talks in Geneva to continue to Dec 15: UN envoyAll parties in Syria urged to join talksMost PopularHot TopicsEbola virusGaza woeDPRKChina and JapanUkraine crisisIranThai crisisBaby princeFerry disasterWorld CupReporters JournalWhether Year of the Ram, Sheep or Goat – its marketing dreamDecade-long health initiative closes up shopSpring Festival is a growing tradition in the US and beyondHighlightsPremier Li attends Davos forumChinas 2014 diplomacySoft diplomacy scores worldwide…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
