Iran: End of nuclear crisis is needed for the Middle East
Iranian Vice President Reza Aghazadeh said Thursday that talks with world powers on its nuclear works could be used to resolve wider Middle East problems from Iraq to oil prices. "If the negotiations get under way, then solutions could be found for many problems like Iraq, Lebanon or fuel prices," said Aghazadeh, also the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation.
According to AFP, he made these remarks after his meeting in Vienna with Mohamed ElBaradei, the head of the UN nuclear watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency. Aqazadeh added that talks between Iran and group 7 are expected to resume in the near future.
Referring to incentive packages exchanged between the two sides (Iran and G7), he said "They have provided us with 'non-paper' proposal in Geneva talks which takes time to be replied." Iran has adopted a very serious, comprehensive and all-out approach in nuclear related talks, he said, according to IRNA.
