He said the Congress consistently believed in peaceful resolution of the contentious nuclear issue by way of diplomacy and dialogue. “It was therefore important that Iran’s right to peaceful uses of nuclear energy is recognized and respected while fully addressing intertiol community’s concern that Iran’s nuclear programme remains exclusively peaceful,” he said in a statement. Describing the understanding as “reassuring”, he said the Congress hoped for a “lasting solution” acceptable to all the stakeholders.
