While the country have been notable in recent times for the controversial development of the industry, the Asian nation of Iran have recommended a live TV discussion show along with ‘western powers’ to provide assurance to the world that their involvement in nuclear power is not being done to create weapons, and is being used to create energy for citizens.
Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast claimed to the Fars News Agency that previous talks with the ‘Group of 5+1′ (consisting of the permanent ‘United Nations Security Council’ members (China, France, Russia, USA, and the UK) alongside Germany) were completely transparent, and that they wanted the world to see that fact while the remaining issues in the discussions (which are claimed to be ‘political’ rather than technical and legal) are ironed out.
Mehman-Parast said of the potential for a TV-based talk on the matter: “Iran’s nuclear issue has a specific framework. The talks that we have pursued have been so transparent and our proposals have been so specific that the Iranian side has even proposed a live TV coverage of the whole talks. We have nothing to hide and we are proposing our ideas transparently. Our disputes with the other party are neither technical nor legal but political.”
Mehman-Parast added that because there is nothing to hide, Iran are fully intent on continuing their national nuclear program (which is fully supported by current national president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (pictured)) and are not going to give up their right to do so.
While controversy surrounding the area remains (with some claiming), will a live TV debate manage to prove innocence for Iran, or will potential TV talks be claimed to be as scripted as some of the ‘reality shows’ aired around the world?
