An Iranian lawmaker said here on Sunday that Iran had taken necessary steps to build trust in its nuclear row, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Kazem Jalali, an Iranian rapporteur of Iran's parliament (Majlis) Commission on National Security and Foreign Policy, said that "Iran has taken the necessary steps to build trust and it was not Iran to leave the nuclear talks."

Referring to the recent statements of the European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana concerning Iran's failure to cooperate on its nuclear program, Jalali said that "If Solana was intending to solve Iran's nuclear issue, he should have adopted the logical strategies."

Solana said in November that he was "worried" by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)'s report that Iran was not cooperating to halt its sensitive nuclear program.

Earlier in a letter sent to Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili, Solana also called for the resumption of nuclear talks to clear up the remaining questions about Iran's nuclear activities.

Reportedly, Solana had insisted in the letter that the 5+1 group, which consists of France, Britain, Russia, China, the United States and Germany, to commit to find a "diplomatic solution" to the nuclear row between Tehran and the West.

The UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1835 in September reaffirming its previous resolutions on Iran and demand full compliance from the Islamic Republic.

It called on Iran "to comply fully and without delay with its obligations" under the resolutions, and to meet the requirements of the IAEA, but without new sanctions.

Iran till now has been under three UN sanctions over its disputed nuclear program.

However, Iran denounces the issuance of chain resolutions by saying that "The chain resolutions lack their legal status where they hurt Iranians' trust."

On June 14, Solana handed the offer of incentives to the Iranian authorities on behalf of 5+1 group during his visit to Tehran in a bid to persuade Iran to halt uranium enrichment.

Iran has also presented its own package of proposals, which it said was aimed to help resolve regional and international problems, including Iran's nuclear issue.
