Iran Willing to Continue Nuclear Talks - Velayati

Ali Akbar Velayati, the senior advisor for international affairs to Iran’s supreme leader and a former foreign minister, said today in Tehran that Iran is willing to continue nuclear talks with the major global powers to reach “a positive and constructive conclusion.” (ISNA, 27 July)

Velayati’s comments indicate the willingness at the senior level of the Iranian leadership to continue the contacts with the West. Iran could accept the recognition by the West of its rights to enrich uranium as the basis of a compromise, or as Velayati put it, “a positive and constructive conclusion” over its nuclear program.
