A member of Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee has said Iran would walk out of nuclear talks if they entered a third stage.
Mohammad [Esmail] Kosari told Mehr News except for initial agreements in Geneva that date back to November 2013, no other breakthrough deal has been signed. “We believe that after a year or so, there has been no practical agreement at all. Extension of talks is an outcome and indication of the failure of both sides in hammering out a deal, which forced them to extend the time to negotiate,” he said.
“The government should not put all its eggs in the negotiation basket; if it expects successful negotiations, it should set limits to the talks so that it would not go beyond a certain line,” said Kosari,
“If this second stage of talks also fails, and there is a third stage, the government should abandon the talks altogether; if the government does not have the support of the nation, it definitely will suffer in the talks,” he emphasized.
He recommended the government rely on domestic capabilities for country’s development now that it has become evident that the West and the US cannot be trusted.
