Iran's deputy parliament speaker on Thursday dismissed an internationally backed draft plan to have Teheran ship its uranium abroad for enrichment.
Mohammad Reza Bahonar was quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying Iran "doesn't accept" the offer, drummed up at a nuclear meeting in Vienna.
Following three-day talks in the Austrian capital, Iran said it would decide on the plan on shipping its uranium to Russia for enrichment.
Bahonar's remark is the first reaction on the draft in Teheran. But he does not speak for the government, which is to decide on the matter.
