Iran`s enemies a `mosquito`: Ahmadinejad
Tehran: Iran`s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is comparing the power of Iran`s enemies to a "mosquito," saying Iran now deals with the West over its nuclear activities from a position of power.
The comment from Ahmadinejad on Sunday comes as Iran is negotiating with the West over a UN-backed proposal to ship its uranium abroad for further enrichment.
The UN-brokered plan would require Iran to send 1.2 tons (or 1,100 kilograms) of low-enriched uranium — around 70 percent of its stockpile — to Russia in one batch by year`s end, for processing to create more refined fuel for a Tehran research reactor.
But Iran has made clear that, at most, it may agree to send only part of its stockpile in several shipments.
