The head of Iran's parliamentary nuclear committee said that an eight-page proposal by the United States takes the nuclear talks "back to zero."

The head of Iran's parliamentary nuclear committee said during the latest nuclear talks in Oman that the United States presented an 8-page recommendation that took the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1) "back to zero.”

In an interview with Tasnim News Agency, Ebrahim Karkhaneh said that during the Nov. 9 trilateral talks between Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, US Secretary of State John Kerry and former European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton a proposal was recommended by the United States that would turn Iran’s nuclear program into nothing more than “decoration.”
