Iran on Sunday issued a warning against Western nations ahead of the upcoming P5+1 negotiations over its contentious nuclear program, and called for an end to the "Zionists' pressures," FARS news agency reported.

Representatives from Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers held talks on Iran's controversial nuclear program in Istanbul on April 14 and are scheduled to meet again on Wednesday in Baghdad.

In a statement released Sunday, the Iranian parliament called on the West "to give up their strategy of deceit and dual-track" policy.

"We warn the Group 5+1 (sic) to respect the rights of the Iranian nation, act on the basis of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which is an internationally accepted norm and free from the Zionists' pressures and change the policy of confrontation with the Islamic Republic to a policy of interaction," FARS quoted Iran's parliament as saying.
