Iran not to suspend uranium enrichment
Iran on Sunday reiterated that it would not suspend its uranium enrichment. Asked about Iran's response to the Europe's offer if it demands suspension of uranium enrichment, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said, "Let's not make any speculations. Let's wait until the proposal is received." The spokesman stressed, "We will not go back and stop uranium enrichment."
Asefi said also that the US is not in a position to give others security guarantee. He said the US itself needs to be given security guarantee, given the difficulties facing it. "The US has not complied with its commitments to various states, including Iran," he added, according to IRNA.
In response to a question about President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recommendation to EU3 to take into view their own interests while making decision about Iran's nuclear issue, he said, "If we are faced with any challenge in this regard, Iran-Europe relations will also face challenge."
