Iran to offer three-stage plan for Geneva nuclear talks
Iran will put forward a three-stage proposal in the upcoming Geneva nuclear talks with the world powers.
The proposal, if agreed upon at the first stage, will automatically commit the other party to 'the recognition of the uranium enrichment right on Iran's soil' as the objective of the negotiations.
The P5+1 group, which includes the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany, will resume talks with Iran on its controversial nuclear program in Geneva from October 15 to 16.
Media reports said that Iran is preparing a package of proposals to halt production of 20 percent enriched uranium, a key demand of the United States and other global powers.
Iran's parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said that the forthcoming negotiations between Iran and six major world powers on the country's nuclear program should aim to build trust in order to yield results.
He expressed hope that the P5+1 group would show 'seriousness and wisdom' in the upcoming nuclear talks with Iran.
He asked them to abide by international regulations and pursue the negotiations within a 'specific framework'.
