Iran won't argue over 'rights' to enrich uranium

April 8, 2007 19:30

Iran's foreign ministry spokesman said Sunday that Iran would not negotiate over its "obvious rights" to enrich uranium. Mohammad Ali Hosseini's comments came a day before Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will travel to Natanz to celebrate the one year anniversary of Iran's announcement that it had enriched uranium for the first time. "We will not have any negotiation over obvious rights of the Iranian nation," said Hosseini during his weekly news briefing. He stressed that uranium enrichment was allowed under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, but said Iran was happy to discuss any doubts the West has about the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program.
