Iran's Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani says the West is using reports of a
possible war on Iran for political leverage in nuclear talks. 

Larijani said the West has always taken advantage of such psychological
warfare for political gain, adding that the recent saber rattling 'could be'
part of the efforts to pursue the same objective. 

"This is not the first time that Iran has been the target of such propaganda
campaigns. I believe western countries are using the report as the 'stick'
[in their carrot and stick policy] ahead of the upcoming talks on the
nuclear package proposals," he added. 

Larijani said that Iran's Parliament would welcome talks on the nuclear
issue but stressed that negotiations should take place in a reasonable
political climate.
