Iran, world powers begin nuclear talks in Moscow
Moscow: In a new attempt to break deadlocked talks, Iran and six world powers on Monday began their latest two-day meeting in the Russian capital.
The six want Iran to curb nuclear enrichment, which can be used to make both reactor fuel and arm nuclear warheads. Iran says it has a right to enrich and denies Western accusations that it is doing so to be able to make such weapons.
Previous talks stalled as each side waited for the other to make the first move. Iran wants sanctions lifted or postponed, but the six powers rule that out until Iran complies with their demands.
On Sunday, a senior Iranian lawmaker urged Western countries to recognise the Islamic Republic`s "inalienable" nuclear rights.
Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran`s Majlis (Parliament), Alaeddin Boroujerdi, said the outcome of the talks depends on the negotiating sides` commitment to agreements and "the P5+1 countries should implement the agreements (reached) in Baghdad and Istanbul”.
