Iran determined to pursue nuclear technology, including full (nuclear) fuel cycle

Wednesday, 24 April 2013

Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran’s ambassador to the IAEA, said that “Western countries are advised to change their mindset from confrontation to cooperation.” He added that “the window of opportunity to negotiate long-term strategic cooperation with Iran, the most reliable, strong and stable partner in the region, is still open.” Soltanieh reiterated that Iran was determined to pursue “all legal areas of nuclear technology, including full (nuclear) fuel cycle and enrichment technology, for peaceful purposes” under IAEA supervision. He added, “Hostile policies of Western countries, including dual track, carrot and stick, sanctions-and-talks policies are doomed to failure… Iran is paying a heavy price for its membership and full commitment to the NPT, while others outside (non-signatories) the treaty are exempt from any inspection and sanctions, but receiving full nuclear cooperation of Western countries, specifically the U.S. and Canada.”
