Iran would no longer negotiate over its nuclear issue as it has become "normalized," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday. "From now on, Iran peaceful nuclear program will be discussed only at the International Atomic Energy Agency within the framework of the NPT regulations and mutual commitments," the Iranian leader told the media at the end of a cabinet session.
Noting that Iran believed the issue of its nuclear activities became "normal," Ahmadinejad stressed "Iran would hold talks with all countries for mutual cooperation based on justice and mutual respect." "As a powerful country, Iran would talk to other countries about issues such as disarmament, global security and economy and preventing tensions," Ahmadinejad stated.
According to him, no one from outside the IAEA has the jurisdiction over the nuclear program. "The time is over now that some people used to show up and talk about Iran's nuclear issue," said the president.
