Tehran (Iran), June 17 (Xinhua-ANI): Ahead of a fresh round of talks between Iran and six major world powers in Moscow, a senior Iranian lawmaker urged Western countries to recognize the Islamic republic's "inalienable" nuclear rights, the Press TV reported Sunday.
"Western countries have no option but to recognize Iran's inalienable nuclear rights," Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran's Majlis (parliament), Alaeddin Boroujerdi, was quoted as saying.
The talks between Iran and the P5+1 -- the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany-are slated for June 18 and June 19 in Moscow.
Boroujerdi said the outcome of the talks depends on the negotiating sides' commitment to agreements and "the P5+1 countries should implement the agreements (reached) in Baghdad and Istanbul," according to the report.
"The West has so far issued illegal resolutions with political objectives against Iran. We strongly oppose this measure and will not give up our legal rights," he added.
Iran and the six powers held the last round of nuclear talks in the Iraqi capital Baghdad in May. (Xinhua-ANI)
