In the meantime, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday that the probable forthcoming talks between Iran and the world powers will be based on the Tehran Declaration.

Tehran Declaration which was a tripartite agreement between Iran, Turkey and Brazil was singed in May endorsing a fuel swap according to which Iran will ship most of its low-enriched uranium to Turkey in exchange for the 20 percent uranium fuel needed for its reactor.

If the things move in the proper way and the talks start in the following months, "the framework of the talks will be the Tehran Declaration," said Mehmanparast in his weekly press briefing.

In June, Ahmadinejad said Iran would postpone nuclear talks with the West to late August to punish the West for imposing economic sanctions on the country. The spokesman said that, however, Iran will never refrain from its inalienable rights of following its "peaceful" nuclear activities.
