Iran says it will seek a three-step strategy in the ongoing round of talks with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1) in Moscow.
The Iranian negotiating delegation is led by Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili (right), and the P5+1 group is headed by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
A member of the Iranian negotiating delegation, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Monday that during the first phase of the Moscow talks, the Iranian delegation will criticize the other party for squandering chances after the negotiations in Baghdad and refusing to hold deputy-level talks. He said the P5+1 has thus dealt a blow to the talks in Moscow.
The Iranian diplomat said Tehran will also give clear and well-documented responses based on the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
He said the Iranian delegation will then test the P5+1's commitment to serious talks on the 5-point proposal by Tehran during the Moscow talks on June 18 and 19.
The Iranian negotiating delegation is led by Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili, and the P5+1 group is headed by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
Jalili earlier urged the West to respect Tehran's nuclear rights in order for the Moscow meeting to succeed.
He also expressed Iran's readiness to cooperate and enter talks with "different countries on a variety of issues, including collaborations in the field of nuclear energy."
The two-day Moscow negotiations are slated to follow up on the previous talks in Iraq and Turkey.
Iran and the P5+1 held three sessions of plenary talks in Baghdad in May after an earlier round of negotiations in the Turkish city of Istanbul in mid-April.
They had previously held two rounds of talks, one in Geneva, Switzerland, in December 2010, and another in Istanbul in January 2011.
