Tehran: “Tehran will continue nuclear talks with the six world powers under the guidelines of supreme leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei”, President Hassan Rouhani said on Thursday.

The president said Iran sought serious talks with the P5+1 group of countries to arrive at a “fair” deal over Tehran’s nuclear programme.

“…Our issue is negotiations; we do not want to merely adopt a stance, but we are seeking serious talks and a fair understanding,” Rouhani said.

Rouhani termed the nuclear talks with the six world powers as a great political issue, saying: “Today we are seeking to consolidate the nation’s right through dialog and interaction.”

Rouhani further urged national unity and solidarity to overcome problems facing the country, including the impact of ‘cruel sanctions’ imposed on the country.

Rouhani’s remarks came as Iran and the P5+1 group — the US, Britain, France, China, and Russia plus Germany — are holding extensive talks in the Austrian city of Vienna to finalise the text of a possible deal over Tehran’s nuclear programme by the end of June.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was scheduled to travel to Vienna on Saturday to join his deputies Abbas Araqchi and Majid Takht-e-Ravanchi, who have been holding talks about the text of a possible comprehensive deal on Tehran’s nuclear programme since June 17.

US Secretary of State John Kerry would also travel to Vienna on Friday to take part in the nuclear negotiations, according to US State Department spokesman John Kirby.

The rest of P5+1 foreign ministers were also expected to join the talks in Vienna.

Iran and the P5+1 group are seeking to seal a comprehensive deal based on mutual understanding on the key parameters agreed upon in the Swiss city of Lausanne on April 2.

Facebook Removes Pages, Fake Accounts Linked to Iran

Facebook has removed 82 Pages, Groups and accounts for what it calls “coordinated inauthentic behaviour” that originated in Iran and targeted people in the US and Britain.

“While we have found no ties to the Iranian government, we can’t say for sure who is responsible,” Nathaniel Gleicher, Head of Cybersecurity Policy at Facebook said in a statement on Friday.

The people behind these Pages and accounts represented themselves as US citizens, or in a few cases UK citizens — and they posted about politically charged topics such as race relations, opposition to the US President, and immigration on Facebook and Instagram.

Facebook said its threat intelligence team first detected this activity one week ago and conducted an internal investigation.

“Despite attempts to hide their true identities, a manual review of these accounts linked their activity to Iran,” Gleicher said.

The activities on Facebook were revealed just weeks before the midterm election in the US and while a heated Brexit debate continues in Britain.

“Given the elections, we took action as soon as we’d completed our initial investigation and shared the information with US and UK government officials, US law enforcement, Congress, other technology companies and the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab,” Gleicher said.

This is not the first time Facebook has removed Pages and accounts linked to Iran. In August, the social network removed 600 Pages and accounts originating from Russia and Iran for engaging in “inauthentic behaviour”. (IANS)
