Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday's nuclear talks with the US and five other nations will be a "test" of their respect for Iran's rights. Iran has come under intense pressure to fully disclose its nuclear activities ahead of the meeting in Geneva with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany. The recent revelation that Teheran has been secretly constructing a new facility to produce nuclear fuel drew international condemnation and raised suspicion that Iran is trying to make a nuclear weapon. "This meeting is a test to measure the extent of sincerity and commitment of some countries to law and justice," Ahmadinejad said after a Cabinet meeting Wednesday, according to official IRNA news agency.
