Kazakhstan ready to host Iran-P5+1 nuclear talks: FM

January 28 2013, 10:31

RoK FM: Yerlan IdrissovRoK FM: Yerlan IdrissovKazakh Foreign Minister Erlan Idrissov expresses his country’s readiness to host the next round of talks between Iran and six major world powers (P5+1) over outstanding issues pertaining to Tehran’s nuclear energy program, reported Iranian News Agency ilna.ir on Monday.

"We said long ago that we were ready to contribute to a peaceful solution to the Iranian crisis," Idrissov said on Friday.

The Kazakh minister emphasized that his country opposes an escalation of tension between Iran and the P5+1 (the permanent members of the UN Security Council- the U.S., Britain, France, Russia and China) plus Germany.

Kazakhstan is ready to host nuclear talks in the cities of Astana and Almaty, noted the Minister.

Iran and the 5+1 group have held three rounds of talks so far in Istanbul, Baghdad and Moscow.

The United States, Israel, and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Iran rejects the allegations, arguing that as a committed signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it is entitled to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
