Senior Iranian lawmaker Mohammad-Hassan Asafari says Western governments should begin lifting sanctions before upcoming nuclear talks in Geneva in order to show their good faith in relations with Iran, Iran's IRNA news agency reported on Saturday.

For example, the official said, they could lift the ban on imports of Iranian oil by China, India and Japan before talks begin to show their good faith.

A concrete timetable must be made in order for nuclear talks to yield results, he added

He also told IRNA that uranium enrichment is Iran's inalienable right, and is a matter that should not be discussed during this week's talks in Geneva.
