Mottaki: Dialogue on nuclear fuel deal can continue

June 29, 2010 14:38

Iran's decision to halt talks with the world applies only to its nuclear program, and does not include a possible nuclear fuel deal, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was quoted as saying Tuesday.

Mottaki went on to say that his country's uranium enrichment program is separate from a UN-drafted plan to swap its low-enriched uranium for higher-enriched uranium in the form of fuel rods, which Tehran needs for a medical research reactor."Negotiations about the fuel swap are only about the fuel swap and negotiations with five-plus-one are about the common points of the proposed packages... these two things are separate," AFP quoted him as saying.
