Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani underscored that Tehran has always believed in solving its problems with the international bodies through dialogue, but meantime, stressed that Iran's firm stance and wise policy in talks with the world powers have proved the country's determination to defend its rights without any fear.

Larijani said on Saturday that some believe that they can break the firm determination of the Iranian nation through hue and cry but to no avail, he said.

Many countries lack enough courage to stand up to global arrogance but the Iranian people have proved their power and resistance, he said.

They make some unreal gestures during talks with Iran but the Iranian negotiating team is vigilant enough not to be deceived, he said.

Since the beginning of nuclear negotiations, Iran has never walked out, Larijani underlined.

They assume that they can dissuade Iran through threats but to no avail, he said.

He advised them to be rational and never assume that they can affect the Iranian people through such illogical words, he said.

The Fourth Round of talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) over a comprehensive, final deal is slated for the first half of the next month.

"Iran and G5+1 will hold their next round of talks in Vienna on May 13-14," Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister and senior negotiator in talks with the six world powers Seyed Abbas Araqchi said in a press conference in Tehran on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, deputy chief negotiators from Iran and the six world powers (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) wrapped up their second day of talks in Vienna.

The talks were headed by Araqchi and EU foreign policy deputy chief Helga Schmidt.

The talks started on Tuesday by a session presided by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at the UN headquarters in Vienna, and continued by a meeting among the deputy chief negotiators of the seven nations.

The talks between Tehran and the six world powers are part of efforts to seal a final deal on Iran’s nuclear energy program.

Iran and the Group 5+1 representatives had several sessions of talks in Vienna on March 18-19.

On November 24, Iran and the Group 5+1 sealed a six-month Joint Plan of Action to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over the latter's nuclear energy program.
