Iran-EU talks beyond nuclear issue: Musavian
Dec. 14 - Irans nuclear spokesman Hossein Musavian said on Tuesday that the Brussels talks were beyond the issue of Irans nuclear program, saying, The negotiations were mainly aimed at the expansion of all-out relations between Iran and Europe.
During the three-month period of the joint working groups activities, Europe has the opportunity to prove its seriousness, good-will and commitment to Iran, Musavian told the Mehr News Agency correspondent in Brussels.
The spokesman said that so far the negotiating sides have agreed on the working groups agenda.
He announced that the working groups were to start their work officially on December 14 and that the initial results of their activities should be tangible by March 14.
Musavian stressed that there would be no reason for Iran to continue with the working groups activities if it sees no progress in negotiations.
But if the working groups produce practical results and accomplishments, we can be hopeful over the continuation of talks, he added.
Referring to the agenda of the joint working groups, Musavian stated that peaceful nuclear cooperation and confidence-building guarantees are two official issues that will be discussed in the nuclear working group.
The political-security committee will study issues related to the national security of both sides as well as the issue of weapons of mass destruction and regional security, he added./MNA-
