Iran nuclear issue can be solved diplomatically: Larijani
Tehran: Iran`s controversial nuclear issue can still be solved diplomatically, Parliament speaker Ali Larijani said on Monday, a day after Tehran revealed plans to build 10 new uranium enrichment plants.
"I still think there is a diplomatic opportunity and it is beneficial to them (world powers) to use this, so that Iran continues its work under the framework of the agency and international supervision," Larijani said, referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
He said this way it would be clear to world powers that Iran`s nuclear programme is "peaceful" in nature.
"They are free to choose the decision and Iran will act accordingly," the former chief nuclear negotiator told reporters.
Larijani insisted that Tehran wanted its nuclear file to be within the IAEA framework.
"But this is one side of the issue. The other side is that if there are political tricks and cheatings, then Iran will definitely change its approach. They must decide which way to go."
