Top official: Iran to continue talks if uranium enrichment resumes
Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Hassan Rowhani said in Tehran Saturday that Iran will continue negotiations with the Europeans if it resumes parts of its uranium enrichment activities.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of his visit to the Imam Khomeini International Airport, Rowhani added, "All Iran's nuclear activities are peaceful."
Asked whether the European big-trio (Germany, Britain, and France) would support referral of Iran's nuclear case to the UN Security Council if the country resumes enrichment, he said, "Based on Iran's proposal, all activities of nuclear fuel cycle will be peaceful.
"The proposal will give legal and political guarantees."
The SNSC secretary said, "The Islamic Republic is ready to guarantee that its nuclear activities are for peaceful purposes.
"Referral of Iran's nuclear dossier to the Security Council will be meaningless."
According to IRNA, Rowhani said, "The Americans may intend to put obstacles (on the way of negotiations) whenever they want but the current trend of talks will leave no place for Iran's nuclear case to be sent to the Security Council legally or technically."
