Iran not to suspend nuclear activities: FM
font size    

Iran refused to fully suspend its nuclear activities in Isfahan nuclear plant and threatened not to go into negotiations with the EU if preconditions are set, its foreign minister said Sunday.

Speaking at a news conference, Iranian Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki termed re-suspending Iran's nuclear activities at its Isfahan uranium processing plant as "out of the question".

He also threatened not to resume talks with the European Union if any precondition is set.

The nuclear negotiations between the Islamic republic and the EU, represented by the big three of Britain, France and Germany, were stalled after Tehran resumed its suspended nuclear activities in August.

This move by Iran triggered outcry from the EU and the United States, which urged to refer Iran's nuclear case to the Security Council for possible sanctions.

However, Mottaki brushed aside the threat at the news conference.

Iran will not deterred by a referral to the UN Security Council, he said, adding such a referral will incur "consequences".
