Iran on Wednesday warned that upcoming talks with the P5 + 1 nations on the Islamic Republic's controversial nuclear program could be the West's "last chance," Reuters reported.

Iranian envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, said that once Iran develops the capability to make its own fuel for a medical research reactor, it may not take part in future talks in the event that the Istanbul talks with the US, China, Russia, France, Britain, Germany and the European Union fail.

"It might be the last chance because by installing fuel rods produced by Iran into the core of the Teheran Research Reactor, probably parliament will not allow the government to negotiate or send its uranium outside the country and the Istanbul meeting might be the last chance for the West to return to talks,"  Soltanieh said.
