A senior advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran will emerge winner in the negotiations with the 5+1 group over its nuclear energy program.
According to Press TV, Ali Akbar Velayati told reporters on Saturday “We are confident that in the end, even if Iran-5+1 group negotiations last for a long time, the Islamic Republic of Iran will be the winner.”
He said Iran favors negotiations and is “seriously” pursuing its talks with 5+1 group, adding that Tehran will never be the one to pull out of the talks.
Velayati, who is also President of the Expediency Council’s Center for Strategic Research, reiterated Iran’s stance that it plans to benefit from “peaceful nuclear energy within the framework of international regulations and supervision.”
He said some countries in the 5+1 group intend to deprive Iran of its “inalienable” nuclear right in violation of the international law, adding that Iran will resist such attempts.
Iran and the 5+1 group of countries – the United States, France, Britain, China, Russia and Germany – are in talks to work out a final deal aimed at ending the longstanding dispute over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear energy program as a November 24 deadline approaches.
