Baghdad (NINA) - The European Union's High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton said, "The international talks with the Iranian side over Iran's nuclear program are positive and the third round will be resumed soon in Moscow.
In a press conference held after ending the 5+1 with Iran meetings, Ashton said, "The agreements with the Iranian side are several; we will attempt to bring the enrichment down to 5% instead of 20%."
Earlier, a member of the Iranian negotiation team to the 5+1 talks said that Iran depends on the Russian and Chinese to pressure other sides to accept Iranian proposals on its nuclear issue.
He told NINA that Iran asserts its natural right to carry out uranium enrichment, pointing out to American opposition to do the enrichment by Iran, whatever the percentage be.
It is known that Iran has begun enriching uranium at the level of 20% that makes it suitable to manufacture nuclear weapon, according to experts. However, Iran insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. / End.
