Basij Commander Dismisses Iran-US Direct Talks as Naive Idea


"The US has offered negotiation with Iran at a time when it has intensified its hostilities against the Islamic establishment more than ever and is imposing harsh sanctions (on Iran)," Naqdi told FNA on the sidelines of Basij's Towards Beitol-Moghaddas wargames underway in Iran's Central province of Yazd

He said anyone speaking about direct talks with the US is inexperienced.

He pointed to the unfruitfulness of 12 years of talks between the Group 5+1 (the US, France, Britain, Russia and China plus Germany) with Iran, and sarcastically said, "Negotiation with the US can produce as much fruit which has been yielded in Iran's talks with the G5+1."

His remarks came after Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in February rejected talks with the US.

Also earlier this week, Ayatollah Khamenei dismissed the results of the Iran-powers talks in Almaty as unimportant, saying the stances and positions adopted by the world powers during the recent talks contained only minor and unimportant changes.

Addressing Experts Assembly members in Tehran on Thursday, Ayatollah Khamenei said that the westerners did not do something important; rather they admitted a small section of the Iranian nation's rights.

He stressed that the next round of negotiations between Iran and the six major world powers of the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) will be a test of the of Western sincerity.

Iran and six world powers last week agreed on further meetings after two days of talks in Kazakhstan, the first since negotiations broke down in June, 2012.

During the talks Iran and the world powers agreed to hold an experts meeting in Istanbul, Turkey, on March 17-18 and then continue their talks at the level of their top negotiators in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on April 5-6.
