TEHRAN – Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said on Saturday that Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stood strong against the Europeans in the nuclear talks in Vienna.
Talking in a gathering of Revolutionary Guards, Araqchi also said if nuclear talks fail, no one can blame Iran.
Araqchi who is the second-ranking person in the nuclear talks with the major powers (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) said Tehran will not bow to pressure by the West in the negotiations.
Iran advances its nuclear program based on international law, he said.
He also said Iran, as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, will not suspend its uranium enrichment program.
He went on to say that Iran has adopted a win-win approach in nuclear talks and will not grant any concessions to the West.

He went on to say that according to the Geneva agreement the major powers have recognized Iran’s right to uranium enrichment.
