Iran insists West must recognise its ‘right to uranium enrichment’
Tehran: Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili said Thursday that in the forthcoming nuclear talks, the West must recognize his country’s right to uranium enrichment.
Making the remarks in Almaty, Kazakhstan, Jalili said that Friday talks can simply open the way to resolving Iran’s nuclear issue by "recognizing Iran’s nuclear rights, especially the rights of enriching uranium."
"This is the right which has been safeguarded by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) directives," he stated.
He expressed the hope that negotiations will end in results, saying that the West faces another "test" regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
Iran and the P5+1 group (Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany) held their latest meeting on the former ``s nuclear program in Almaty in late February and agreed to hold another round of talks on April 5 and 6.
