Iran agreed to talks with world powers over its nuclear program to reduce economic pressure on the people, and will continue on this path but will not compromise on its values and accomplishments, says a senior official. 
Speaking at an open session of parliament on Sunday, Majlis  Speaker Ali Larijani said Iran agreed to talks with major powers including the United States despite its hostility to "improve the situation from an economic perspective," ICANA reported.  
He was referring to marathon talks that led to the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran, the US, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia that gave Iran sanctions relief in exchange for curbing its nuclear program. Washington pulled out of the agreement in May. 
"After the US withdrawal from the nuclear agreement, the European Union often requested that Iran not exercise its legal right to reciprocate and urged it to stay in the accord," the senior lawmaker told the chamber.
