Iran says time for solving nuclear issue not "unlimited"

TEHRAN, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday that time for solving the nuclear issue of the Islamic republic is not "unlimited" and both sides should seize the time.

"The world should know that the time span for resolving the nuclear issue will not be unlimited and they (powers) should seize the time and we will," said Rouhani in a televised speech on Tuesday night.

The end results of the upcoming talks between Iran and the world powers over Iran's nuclear issue should be based on a win- win approach and a win-lost formula is meaningless, said the Iranian president.

The preparatory steps have been taken here for the talks, " since we are seeking serious negotiations with both the UN nuclear watchdog (IAEA) and the P5+1," added Rouhani.

"Iran will seek to implement all its (nuclear) rights on the basis of international regulations and NPT directives and nobody can deprive Iran from its legal rights," he emphasized.

The Islamic republic insists the West should recognize Iran's " civilian" nuclear rights, including its enrichment program, and reduce pressures, however, the United States and its allies suspect that Iran's nuclear activities might aim at weaponry dimensions.

After the victory of moderate President Hassan Rouhani in Iran' s June 14 elections, both the Iranian government and the six world powers showed interest in resuming nuclear talks. Their last round of negotiations was held in Almaty, Kazakhstan, in April, but the meeting did not produce practical results.
