Issue of How Sanctions Are Lifted Could Result in Failure of Nuclear Talks
“The importance of (nuclear) talks in the framework of our heroic flexibility rests on the proposition that in lieu of compromises offered by Iran all sanctions should be lifted in a single step,” Gen. Jafari said.
“No matter how the talks end, whether the sanctions are lifted or not, we must preserve the main values and mottos of our system. If we show any flexibility, it is within the framework of the principles and policies of our system (“nezam”) and for preserving the high esteem and power of our Islamic system and the interests of the Iranian nation,” Jafari said. “I believe the Supreme Leader’s concerns are those types of concerns.” (Fars News Agency, 11 April)
“Regarding the lifting of sanctions, there are ambiguities which need to be transparent, and we need to know that this subject of how sanctions are lifted could result in failure of the talks.”
