Iran will no longer consider a proposal to move its uranium enrichment program to Russian territory and is instead considering large scale uranium enrichment at home, the Foreign Ministry spokesman said Sunday. Russia has sought to persuade Iran to move its enrichment program to Russian territory, which would allow closer international monitoring. Iran had insisted that the plan was negotiable and reached basic agreement with Moscow but details were never worked out. "The Russian proposal is not on our agenda any more," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said. Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, meanwhile, said Sunday Iran had no intention to use oil as a weapon in its confrontation with the West over its nuclear program, contradicting Interior Minister Mostafa Pourmohammadi who said a day earlier that Tehran could use oil as a weapon if the UN Security Council imposed sanctions against it.
