Speaker: Iran not to accept full suspension of uranium enrichment
Iran's Majlis Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel said on Sunday Tehran will not accept full suspension of uranium enrichment. Hadad-Adel made this remark while addressing the a session of the Majlis.
"If the three European states (Germany, Britain and France) consider 'objective guarantee' as full suspension of uranium enrichment, the Islamic Republic of Iran would not accept it as it runs counter to the Paris agreement and the (International Atomic Energy) Agency's articles of association," he said, according to IRNA.
In the EU jargon, "objective guarantees" is the codeword implying that Iran has to put a total stop to its nuclear enrichment programme, not just to suspend it.
"Iran is waiting for the EU-3 proposal. We have suspended enrichment activities voluntarily to prove our goodwill and want the EU-3 to clarify their intention behind `objective guarantee.' "Why the European troika consider not engaging in nuclear activities as the only way to gain confidence while Iran opened its nuclear facilities to the IAEA inspectors and gave convincing answers to all questions and ambiguities?"
