TEHRAN, Feb.09 (ISNA)-Iran's parliament national security and foreign affairs commission deputy informed that Iran's parliament members were ready to maintain talks with U.S. congress or senate members. Speaking to ISNA, Mohammad Nabi Roudaki stated that however, these parliament talks would not mean a political-economic relationship with the U.S.
Roudaki reiterated that with the exception of the Zionist regime, maintaining nuclear talks with European and American countries was not rejectable according to the Iran's Supreme national security council standards.
"Iran is ready to maintain talks based on the requests by the U.S. officials and senators, but as the Islamic Revolution founder, Imam Khomeini stated, Iran will not have any sort of political relationships with the U.S. unless it renounces its oppressive strategies and plotting schemes," he said.
He further declared that Iran would not attempt any form of relationship with the U.S. until the Americans began to respect the rights of the nations, stopped the torture and terrorism in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Guantanamo Prison and evacuated Iraq and Afghanistan.
"For the past 27 years, the Zionist regime and the U.S. related media have been keen on introducing Iran as a terrorist and a barbaric country. If parliament relationships are initiated, perhaps it would help to clarify this image and impression," said Roudaki.
He also expressed hope that the talks would clarify the present ambiguities of the circumstances between both countries.
"We have always acted in a clear and a clarifying way. We succeeded in asking the Non Alignment Movement (NAM) representatives to visit our Uranium Conversion Facility (UCF), and today we are ready to maintain nuclear talks with the U.S.," he said.
