Tehran, Apr 16 (ANI): Iran has agreed to the formation of concrete proposals by diplomats for resolving the crisis over its nuclear ambitions.
The first formal negotiations between Iran and the six world powers, after a year ended with agreement of preparing concrete proposals for solving the impasse.
Saeed Jalili, the Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, took the unusual step of commending his adversaries at the conclusion of the session in Istanbul.
"Today, we saw a positive approach and we consider it a step forward. For the Iranian people, the language of pressure doesn't work, but the language of co-operation could be fruitful. Today, we witnessed such an approach," The Telegraph quoted Jalili, as saying.
Jalili, an often irascible hardliner who last year declined to even talk about Iran's nuclear programme unless all sanctions were lifted, adopted a very different tone during recent discussions with the five permanent members of the Security Council, America, Britain, Russia, France and China, along with Germany.
According to the paper, diplomats noted Jalili this time, adopted a very 'calm and constructive' approach.
Iran insists on its right to continue enriching uranium, a sensitive process that could be used to make the material for a nuclear weapon.
The US, Britain and the other world powers, however, want Iran to obey six United Nations resolutions and stop enrichment. (ANI)
