5+1 group must recognize Iran’s role in the Mideast: MP

TEHRAN, May 18 (MNA) -- The 5+1 group must recognize that Iran is an influential regional power that is able to help resolve the Middle East’s crises through its new package of proposals, MP Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh said on Monday.

Iran will soon finalize its new package of proposals, which includes “updated information regarding fundamental solutions to the problems of the region,” and present it to the 5+1 group (the five permanent UN Security Council members -- the U.S., Britain, France, China and Russia -- plus Germany), an informed source told the Fars National Agency on Sunday.


Falahatpisheh told the Mehr News Agency that the diplomatic package should make it clear that Iran expects to attain its rightful position in the world so it can play its role in global developments.


In the package, Iran will renew its commitments to international conventions but will also call for the restoration of its rights, which have been trampled upon, he added.


Commenting on the U.S. call for Iran’s participation in meetings with the 5+1 group, he said that Washington and Tehran must have direct talks in order to make the U.S. presence in the meeting effective.


He went on to say that the U.S. has been acting in a high-handed manner in the lead-up to the proposed talks with Iran, adding that U.S. officials are making an “analytical mistake” if they think they should hold talks with a certain faction of Iranian officials and the people in general.


Iran should play important role in resolving intl. crises


Political analyst Ali Khorram says Iran should include its concerns in the diplomatic package.


Iran should also use it to inform the world that the Islamic Republic is prepared to help efforts to peacefully resolve international crises and believes it should play an important role in this process, he told MNA on Monday.


And there is no reason that Iran should be denied the opportunity to defend its nuclear rights at the talks on its nuclear program, Khorram added.
