Nothing to negotiate on enrichment research, says Iran's envoy
font size    

Iran has "nothing to negotiate" on its nuclear research programme, the country's charge d'affaires in Paris said on Monday ahead of a crucial meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna.

"We have told the Europeans that when it comes to research there is nothing to negotiate. It is our legitimate right," Seyed Ali Moujani told French LCI news television.

"We believe we must continue enrichment (of uranium). On research, Iran does not wish to depend for any reason on another country for its economic development," he added.

Responding to concerns over security surrounding the nuclear issue, he said "we believe everything must be done in the framework of a shared consortium so that your (European) researchers can be present and manage the whole of the process."

The IAEA members are to meet on Monday in Vienna to decide whether to refer the Iran nuclear issue to the UN Security Council.

Iran refuses to suspend its research on uranium enrichment which it resumed on Jan. 10 in Natanz, ignoring international criticism.
