Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that the West has moved "from confrontation to interaction" with Iran over its controversial uranium enrichment, which he called the nation's "inalienable right." Speaking to a rally in the northeastern city of Mashhad, Ahmadinejad said "ground has been paved for nuclear cooperation" and that Teheran is ready to work on nuclear fuel supplies and technical know-how with the UN nuclear watchdog. The speech came as the Islamic republic was to respond to a UN-drafted plan on shipping the country's low enriched uranium abroad for further enrichment. The plan curtails any covert nuclear arms making abilities by Iran.
