TEHRAN, Nov. 19 (MNA) – Iran’s foreign ministry spokeswoman has said Yukio Amano says no drastic change he has seen in Iran’s program.

Mehr News quoted Marzieh Afkham in a press conference answering to questions by the reporters.

Asked about the IAEA recent report on Iran, Afkham told that Mr. Amano’s report was more balanced than the Agency’s prior reports, which was due to Iran and the Agency agreement.

Asked about possible prediction of the third round of talks in Genève, Afkham told that Iran had examined the negotiations process realistically and with optimism. “We hope that given our honesty and good will in negotiations, we achieve our objectives in line with recognition of Iranians nuclear rights,” she added.

About the EU measures on putting new sanctions on some Iranian organizations, foreign ministry spokeswoman told that “we believe that the act was significantly directed and we deem it to be merely politically motivated.”

Asked about the possibility of new sanctions passed by the US along with negotiations in Genève, Afkham told that Iran had declared before that excessive pressure and sanctions would not be effective. “We believe sanctions are unacceptable, and hope new round of sanctions do not erode the negotiations and make reaching  to a deal difficult,” she added, and that “we hope such acts will no longer be repeated.”

  About the objectives set by Iran’s negotiating team, Afkham said that they sought Iranians rights to be recognized, and that they would consider redlines and sensitivities in Tehran and all past record of the negotiations. “We hope that we hammer out a deal this time,” she asserted. “Russia and Iran have common positions and we hope to work in cooperation to take effective steps to solve the crisis in Syria,” Afkham told reporters.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s position is a political solution for crisis, and a Syrian-Syrian sides participating in possible dialogue,” Afkham added.
