Iranian, German foreign minsters talk on Iran`s nuclear programs

Berlin, Feb 17, IRNA -- Visiting Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs Kamal Kharrazi and his German counterpart Joschka Fischer met here Wednesday night and conferred on Iran's nuclear programs, as well as regional and international developments. Focussing on "Iran's serious talks" with the EU on IRI nuclear programs, Kharrazi said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran hopes the ongoing talks would proceed logically and the Europeans, too, would display more serious determination in achieving tangible results from them."

The Iranian foreign minister referring to negative approaches adopted by third parties regarding Iran-EU talks, said, "Threat language leaves no positive effect on our ongoing talks." Elaborating on the current atmosphere of Iran-Europe talks, he said, "The process of trust building, strengthening mutual understanding, and proposing logical and practical solutions can facilitate the progress of our talks more than ever before." Kharrazi reiterated, "Peaceful nuclear plants in Germany and Japan can serve as a good model for the Islamic Republic of Iran's nuclear projects, and serve as the basis for any round of talks in that respect."

During the meeting the German foreign minister, too, presented his viewpoint regarding the ongoing Iran-Eu talks, arguing, "We should not have a negative attitude about the final outcome of the talks in advance, since what really counts in these talks is obtaining practical guarantees about the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programs."

Fischer reiterated, "The EU has a realistic and constructive approach in its talks with Iran and pursues the talks free from the influence of the third parties' propagation." The German top diplomat meanwhile evaluated the current nature f Berlin-Tehran ties as "positive", expressing hope that the existing potentials for broadening economic ties would be properly identified and taken advantage of.

The two sides also exchanged viewpoints on Iraq, Afghanistan and Middle East developments during the meeting. Kharrazi and Fischer had earlier Wednesday attended the opening ceremony of Islamic Republic of Iran's new Embassy in Berlin
