Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday his country's nuclear rights were not negotiable, the student news agency ISNA reported. "The Iranian nation's nuclear rights are not negotiable and our nuclear cooperation will be done within the U.N. nuclear watchdog's framework ... Nuclear cooperation with Iran is beneficial to the West," ISNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.


During a meeting with members of the Organization of Asia-Pacific News Agencies (OANA) in Tehran, he was asked about Iran’s nuclear issue, and stated, “enemies politicized Iran’s nuclear issue and exerted every effort to make Iranians yield but they failed.” “Iran is ready for a constructive and honest cooperation with western countries in the field of nuclear technology,” he stated while warning West’s confrontation with Iran only makes the country more powerful and more developed.
