Parliament Speaker cautions US against harsh tone on Iran

Ali Larijani

TEHRAN (ISNA)-Iranian Parliament Speaker Saturday cautioned the United States against harsh tone on Iran.

The US Secretary of States Hilary Clinton said Wednesday "(We) are more than willing to reach out to the Iranians to discuss a range of issues, assuming they're willing to reach back."

She, however, threatened "we are also laying the groundwork for the kind of very tough ... sanctions that might be necessary in the event that our offers are either rejected or the process is inconclusive or unsuccessful."

The US Secretary of States has recently spoken of crippling sanctions against Iran, Ali Larijani said and added "but American officials should pay attention to this point that if they use this tone, they should get primed for Iran's biting behavior."

He, meanwhile, added "there are many potentialities to use good reflections and ideas in line with this, economic opportunities are very important on this path."

MP urges N-talks with G5+1based on Tehran's next proposal package

Alaeddin Boroujerdi

An Iranian legislator called for continuing negotiations between Tehran and world's six powers over Iran's nuclear program through Tehran's next proposal package.

"The major issues presented in Iran's (next) proposal package are discussable with all of the Group 5+1," Chief of National Security Commission of Iran's Parliament, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, told ISNA on Saturday.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Tehran was preparing a new proposal package to restart talks with the 6 countries on Tehran's nuclear program, as well as, other major political and economic issues on the international level, after Iran announced on April 9th, with the countries third anniversary of national day of nuclear technology, that it has achieved complete fuel cycle in Isfahan's Fuel Manufacturing Plant (FMP) and tested two types of new high-capacity centrifuges successfully.

Iran also released an official statement on Wednesday as a response to the recent statement by 5 permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany and reiterated it was continuing nuclear work through cooperation with the IAEA and under Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Iran welcomed preparing proportionate grounds for dialogue. It also voiced readiness for positive talks through updating its package of proposals offered last year, the statement said.

The official message continued Iran welcomed dialogue and constructive interactions based on mutual respect and believed problems of the world must be settled through negotiation.

The era of discussion on stopping or suspending uranium enrichment is over now but instead the time is ripe for dialogue over a series of topics that will be presented in Iran's upcoming proposal package, Boroujerdi said.

"It is reasonable that we continue the job (negotiation) in such a ground and on this basis it is possible to have dialogue with all Group 5+1 members over the major issues included in Iran's upcoming proposal package," he added.
