The chairman of the Expediency Council hopes nuclear talks will be conclusive.
Chairman of the Expediency Council Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has once again backed Iran’s nuclear team, wishing them success and saying the talks have reached a critical point.
In an interview with Entekhab news website on Tuesday, Rafsanjani said nuclear talks are at a critical stage and this has made the conclusion of a final deal [with P5+1] more likely than before.
The top councilor said at a time when some have pinned much hope on the conclusiveness of the talks and some others are totally pessimistic, one needs to wait and see what will unfold in the coming sessions.
“Iran has proved, both in words and in deeds, that it – like other nations – is after peaceful use of nuclear energy, the knowhow of which has been indigenized in Iran,” he said, adding that Tehran showed its resentment of the employment of weapons of mass destruction during the Iran-Iraq war [in the 1980s].
Rafsanjani went on to say with nuclear talks under way, what is done at home should not force Iranian negotiators to express views which could harm what they have achieved so far.
In conclusion, he expressed hope that the nuclear team could make big gains in the talks.
