Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani says a final agreement over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear energy program will benefit all sides and boost regional stability.
Larijani made the remarks at a presser held on the sidelines of the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s General Assembly in the Swiss city of Geneva on Wednesday.
“I think a nuclear deal will benefit everyone and this agreement will bring about the capacity to resolve some problems hampering regional stability,” said the Iranian parliament speaker.
He added that the talks between Iran and the Sextet of world powers were moving ahead towards a comprehensive deal.
Iran and the six powers – Russia, China, France, Britain, the US, and Germany – are in talks to work out a final agreement aimed at ending the longstanding dispute over Tehran’s nuclear energy program.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday that the two sides would “certainly” reach a deal on the issue.
Larijani further commented on the US-led coalition against the ISIL Takfiri militants, saying the coalition would not bear any results unless its members stop sponsoring the terrorists.
On Monday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi slammed supporters of the Takfiris, referring to Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and some Persian Gulf Arab states.
The terrorists, who currently control parts of Syria and Iraq, have committed widespread acts of violence, including mass executions, abductions, torture and forcing women into slavery in the areas they have seized in the two countries.
