TEHRAN (Iran News) –  The Islamic Republic of Iran will not ignore its rights by giving excessive concessions to the West during the Vienna talks and it is getting ready for any scenario that the West wants to perform.

On Wednesday and during the JCPOA talks in Vienna, the Islamic Republic of Iran presented two drafts on its proposals to P4+1 which showed the story this time is totally different than what the country accepted during President Hassan Rouhani’s era.

Iran’s chief negotiator says the two drafts Tehran has presented to the five remaining parties to a 2015 landmark nuclear deal during the latest round of talks in the Austrian capital of Vienna “cannot be rejected,” urging once again the immediate removal of all the United States’ sanctions.

“Iran’s proposals to the world powers cannot be rejected. They are based on the provisions of the 2015 agreement,” Ali Baqeri-Kani said in an interview with the Doha-based Al Jazeera broadcaster, referring to the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Baqeri-Kani added that Tehran would deliver a third proposal once the first two were accepted.

Regarding the details of the proposed drafts on the removal of sanctions and nuclear issues, he said the important point is that the two parties agreed on the foundation of negotiations which is the same nuclear deal of 2015.

“What we have presented is the malfunctions and the blunders which were in the text of the [JCPOA] draft and we presented some modifications,” the Iranian chief negotiator added.

He emphasized that all nuclear-related sanctions that the U.S. imposed on Iran following its unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA three years after its conclusion should be removed immediately.

Diplomats from the participant countries gathered in Vienna last Monday for the seventh time, after a hiatus in the talks because of presidential election in Iran. Five days of intensive talks ended on Friday after the sides returned to the capitals for more consultations.

The website of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) said on Friday that the Europeans’ lack of initiative in the face of the Iranian team’s “groundbreaking” proposals is dragging down negotiations in Vienna.

Iran’s top security body quoted Baqeri-Kani as saying, “The first document sums up the Islamic Republic’s point of view concerning the removal of sanctions, while the second is about Iran’s nuclear actions.”

“In the third document to be presented to the other parties, Iran will state its views and proposals with regard to the verification period of removing sanctions,” he added. The top Iranian negotiator also told reporters before his departure that the country’s new delegation to this round of talks was comprised of economic, financial and banking experts and officials, which “showed the Islamic Republic’s determination to enter the negotiations with the purpose of achieving an agreement.”

Iran’s lead negotiator said the P4+1 group of countries has been given the chance to consult with their capitals on the Islamic Republic’s two proposed drafts, underlining that Tehran expects a “reasonable, documented and rational” response.

“It was emphasized that the proposals of the Islamic Republic of Iran on the removal of illegal and oppressive sanctions and the nuclear issue are on the table,” Baqeri-Kani said. “Since the opposite side needed to consult with their capitals to provide a documented and reasonable response to these proposals, it suggested that the talks be suspended for a few days.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Baqeri-Kani said that “external actors,” the Zionists in particular, are making serious efforts in order to impede and disrupt the process of negotiations between Iran and the P4+1 group of countries in Vienna.

In response to a question about the likelihood of an Israeli attack on the Iranian nuclear sites, he rejected the possibility outright and said, “I believe that the Zionists should [only] dream of attacking Iran and if they go on to this dream, they will never wake up from that dream.”

Baqeri-Kani showed this fact that the current negotiating team under President Seyed Ebrahim Raisi is totally different from the team who negotiated during Mr. Rouhani’s presidency. This time Iran is not ready to close its eyes on its rights because it once did in 2015 and saw its disappointing outcome and now the country is mature enough from its past mistake and it is also in a strong position for any scenario from the hostile countries.

On Saturday, Iran’s air defense force fired missiles to test rapid reaction force against possible atrocities of the Zionists against its nuclear facilities. While Iran’s military and defense system is getting ready for any attack, the government is preparing a budget based on the continuation of sanctions because toughening the sanctions will be the major weapon of the West against Tehran because it lacks enough guts to resort to any military attack.

So the West is advised to accept Tehran’s proposals and to stop the excessive demands because era of Rouhani has ended and era of a revolutionary government has begun in the country and this does not mean that the country is not ready to negotiate but it means it will not give in any bullying and giving concessions.

So the ball is on the West’s court whether to accept or continue its atrocities and to face the due responses from Tehran because Tehran will not retreat any inch from its logical and legal demands which had ignored it during President Rouhani’s era.
