FM: Iranians waiting for Wests confidence-building measures

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Tehran is doing its best to pave the ground for the successful implementation of the interim nuclear deal with the world powers, and urged the western states to take reciprocal confidence-building measures.

Speaking at a meeting with Head of Italian Senate Foreign Policy Commission Senator Pier Ferdinando Casini in Tehran on Sunday, Zarif said the Iranian nation wants cooperation, but it is pessimistic about the West's good will, and the western powers should try to build Iranians' confidence.

On November 24, Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) sealed a six-month Joint Plan of Action to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the Wests decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program. In exchange for Tehrans confidence-building bid to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the Sextet of world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against Tehran and continue talks with the country to settle all problems between the two sides.

Iran and the six world powers ended a third round of expert-level talks in Geneva, Switzerland, on Tuesday in a bid to devise mechanisms to implement the interim nuclear deal struck in November.
