Iran's chief negotiator in talks with the six world powers has called on the Western states to avoid "unconstructive remarks" ahead of upcoming nuclear talks in Baghdad. Saeed Jalili warned against what he called "pressure strategy" by the West.

Jalili was quoted as saying in a meeting with the visiting former French Prime Minister Michel Rocard that any kind of miscalculation would endanger success of the negotiations. The former French leader said that the "Istanbul talks were a positive step ahead", and expressed hope that Iran and the six powers would continue the path of understanding that they started in Istanbul.

Last week, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said that the Islamic republic would not let its rights be violated by the West in the talks later in May in the Iraqi capital Baghdad. He claimed the West was engaged in consultations with its allies in a bid to change the atmosphere of talks and get the upper hand.
