Iran may discuss suspension of enrichment

Iran is prepared to discuss the suspension of uranium enrichment activities- if the UN Security Council closes its file on Teheran's nuclear program, Iran's foreign minister said Tuesday. Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Iran will continue to insist on its right to the peaceful use of nuclear technology, but would be open to discussing "all issues." Mottaki was in Geneva to address the UN's conference on disarmament. "We have been proposing the suspension of the resolution within the Security Council and on all sides putting into force the Additional Protocol (to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty)," Mottaki told reporters. "And then we will be able to sit and talk about all issues. And if they wish, they can raise the issue of suspension there."
